It is the purpose of this paper to present the research and development approach of a semantic web based system appropriately designed to support for the exchange of clinical information and in particular of clinical referral letters. The presented system is part of a Web based Patient Management system and aims to contribute towards the solution of the interoperability problems that occur between different health-care provider networks and information systems.
