Abstract This paper presents a semantic agent coordination framework for the automatic exchange of Electronic Health Records (EHR). The framework enables health organizations that comply with the existing interoperability standards, as proposed by the Integrating Healthcare Enterprise (IHE), to dynamically connect in a P2P network. A set of autonomous agents and a set of distributed coordination rules are used to coordinate the agents in the search of specific health records. The framework models the interactions among the communities as a combination of the tuple centre agent communication model with the publish-subscribe paradigm and semantic web technologies. In order to illustrate the scalability of our approach, we evaluate the proposed solution in distributed settings. The contribution of this work is that it proposes the coordination mechanisms for IHE compliant communities to dynamically connect and share EHR of patients.
