EHR semantic interoperability problems have long been academic and industrial research hotspots and difficulties. By using Description Logic-based semantic web knowledge representation, first it gets a semantic interoperability document for EHR and packages it into a communicational message structure of agent communication language named KQML which support semantic.Then satisfy two aspects of semantic EHR interoperability requirements with a multi-agent cooperation model: Semantic integration and transparent query of heterogeneous EHR data sources, semantic interoperability of Heterogeneous EHR systems.
