Information Persistence Architecture for Informal and Formal Care Providers
Health and social care systems currently face with a set of challenges that requires integrated approaches. Integrated care comprises formal care networks, both health care and social care, and informal care networks resulting from a diversity of community-oriented structures (e.g. relatives, friends or voluntary groups). This paper presents an information persistence architecture designed to support the development of information services specially focused on informal care providers. Informal care is inherently slightly structured and, consequently, imposes high demanding requirements related with the flexibility and interoperability of the information persistence.
