  • © Springer International Publishing AG 2016.The paradigm of healthcare systems has change from isolated proprietary health records to patient-centric solutions in which government, hospitals and clinics, general practitioners and other stakeholders must cooperate in order to provide improved health services. Enabling interoperability to share heterogeneous medical and administrative information in a secure environment is an issue addressed worldwide. Standards help though are not enough to provide the right information at the right time and place. In this paper we proposed to leverage the interoperability between standards through the mediation of a ubiquitous user model and an automatic process of concept alignment.
