Additional Information: Originality: This paper presented at ICSE 2004 reports on the implementation of a service-oriented solution to information brokerage in the health care professions. Its novelty is two-fold, arisingfrom the fact that it addresses fundamental issues arising from information sharing and brokerage, whilst applying principles of service-oriented software to the pilot implementation created to demonstrate brokerage concepts. Rigour: The work is based upon actual requirements of health care professionals (NHS and social services) to share complex data across heterogeneous, independent systems. It builds upon data sharing principles which must be tailored to address professional and ethical issues arising from the particular domain, as well as developing and refining principles of service-oriented software service delivery. Significance: The work builds upon previous research to establish service-oriented architectures and has created a baseline for the delivery of higher-level, software applications, employing traditional web service techniques together with additional, novel, brokerage systems. Impact: The work has been widely reported within the medical community and welcomed as an alternative to the construction of monolithic systems emerging within the NHS IT programme. The work has thrown up many methodological and working practice issues which are being taken forward in the medical profession and the concept of a single, electronic patient record.
