Recent years has witnessed a spurt of medical information development and the formation of isolated hospital information islands followed. The case data and image data are desired to be integrated on a medical cloud storage information platform to balance the medical resources, improve the diagnosis and treatment level of primary hospital, reduce patient’s medical expenditure, and solve the hard and expensive healthcare problem. On the basis of the whole framework of medical cloud storage and data integration technology, this study builds a unified medical cloud storage information platform by fast, efficiently, and compatibly integrating the heterogeneous information sources of each hospital, aiming at realizing an unified, convenient, integrated external service interface and the real sharing of medical information.
