This paper presents a Peer to Peer (P2P) agent coordination framework for the exchange of Electronic Health Records (EHR) between health organisations that comply with the existing interoperability standards as proposed by the Integrating Healthcare Enterprise (IHE). Every health organisation represents a community in a P2P network and uses a set of autonomous agents and a set of distributed coordination rules to coordinate the agents in the search of specific health records. To model the interactions among communities, the framework uses the tuple centre agent communication model and semantic web technologies. In order to illustrate the scalability of our approach, we evaluate the proposed solution in distributed settings. Copyright 2013 ACM.
