Data integration in medical applications is a crucial and sensitive task. It turns out that there are rigid factors like heterogeneous, distributed data sources, security, and complex, dynamically changing application requirements that require a highly sophisticated and flexible data integration concept which – in a final stage – has to cover the whole healthcare landscape. We have developed a process based data logistic approach that is coping with these requirements. It is based on process technology including workflow management and database technology including ontologies and terminology management.
