Abstract

We describe a Biomedical INteroperable Database System (BIND), which is part of a larger research project, the Biomedical Equipment Assessment and Management (BEAM) system. BEAM is an AIM (Advanced Informatics in Medicine) awarded project and it is funded by the European Community. It integrates a number of heterogeneous database systems which store Biomedical information, over public communications networks. The databases are located in various European countries. Users access the information via a common user interface and are able to run transactions over the multidatabase system.
