    Author(s): Bernd Blobel*

    Background: The ongoing healthcare transformation results in systems medicine and personalized care. This requires advanced interoperability scenarios. Objectives: The paper aims at introducing a reference architecture model to enable the harmonization of existing and future specifications and standards. Methods: For enabling the harmonization of standards and specifications, they have to be correctly and formally represented using a system-theoretical, architecture-centric, ontology-based, policy-driven approach. Results: An Interoperability Reference Architecture Model has been developed and standardized at ISO TC 215 and CEN TC 251. It is used for re-engineering specifications and standards, that way enabling harmonization with any other specification. The proposed modeling methodology has a.. Read More»
