Abstract

Longitudinal and persistent electronic medical record system is called EHR (Electronic Health Record) system. Many hospitals are trying to install EMR (Electronic Medical Record) system with slogan of paperless, chartless, filmless and slipless hospital. We propose an agent interaction messaging model to express the meaning of messages of ACL (Agent Communication Language) between agents that play key roles for Electronic Health Record System. Functional entities are divided according to tasks and implemented as collaborating agents.
