With the development of medical health, regional health information sharing has become the inevitable trend of the development of medical information. However, due to the regional medical information construction, it hinders the exchange and sharing of clinical data for some disadvantages like low-level degree of system integration, low real-time of information exchange, poor reliability, etc. According to the existing problems of the regional health, this paper constructs a regional health information collaborative platform, utilizes information integration to form patient as core of clinical data, uses clinical document architecture (CDA) as data exchange standard, and implements the data exchange and sharing between medical institutions and the regional medical center.
