© The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2018. The concept of "Smart City" is evolving and increasingly becoming important for modern urban society. The state structures, business and institutions increasingly rely on information technology (IT) in its architectural representation. Such transformation of cities is connected with the growing use of software, server infrastructure and client devices in all the most important municipal services. The construction of infrastructure for these municipal services is a complex task, being solved both at the level of the whole city and at the level of individual directions. "Smart healthcare" is an important part of the "Smart City" concept. It is built on scalable storage systems and a communications platform. With this type of IT support, patient records are stored electronically and distributed where they are needed. Construction of "Smart health" ecosystem has to be addressed steadily and on different levels in order to design an infrastructure integrated in the whole-city concept. This research paper discusses the IT services that underlie the concept of "Smart Healthcare", and describes a project for developing software and designing a technology infrastructure for the implementation of these services by major medical centers within the framework of the general concept of "Smart City". The research represents a step-wise analysis of society needs and development of IT-services and application, which are designed to connect the urban infrastructure with inner ecosystem of hospitals. The results of the work can be used as a basis for the design of IT services for e-health and the construction of the "Smart Healthcare" system.
