With many disparate information systems distributed among social and medical care facilities, achieving an integrated social and medical view of people is a huge challenge. We propose a system based on semantic integration that addresses this challenge. It achieves light-weight data integration and navigation via a three-layer architecture: a virtual RDF view layer, a distributed query processing layer and a unified context view layer. This integrates information from disparate systems without cloning data, and also supports data exploration through a novel visualization.
