The Personal and Group Healthcare Portfolio Concept represents a revolutionary shift in thinking about the architecture and solutions design for the next generation of Healthcare Management and Bio-Informatics systems. This proposal is dedicated upon the proposition that the only architectural approach that can accommodate the level of complexity likely to be associated with tomorrow s healthcare challenges is one built around a services paradigm. A services oriented healthcare solution supports any number of federated data sources and allows for flexibility, agility and dynamic adaptability. Those services when viewed holistically and presented in contextual views represent Healthcare Portfolios these are more than records , more than portals and more than single EHR systems. A Portfolio is a user-defined semantic context engine and analytics platform. The goal with our solution is not to hard-code all knowledge and outcomes within it but rather to build the solution so that it can be extended as needed. Medical knowledge is dynamic; new discoveries are made every day and massive amounts of data require analysis both for individuals and entire populations. As our insights improve, we will need to have the ability to reapply them to existing knowledge. The Healthcare Portfolio framework delivers that capability.
