Abstract

XML databases allow to process and organize information in an optimal and simplified way for the final user. In this paper, XML databases advantages and disadvantages for e-health are analyzed. Included results have been obtained through theoretical and practical research, using similar environments as those that can be found in real situations, practical examples, and with the opinion of clinical staff. In the last section, a dissertation on the potential of XML databases for future applications is presented.
