XML-BASED SYNCHRONISATION OF MOBILE MEDICAL DEVICES

XML-BASED SYNCHRONISATION OF MOBILE MEDICAL DEVICES Introduction To avoid the increasing use of paper documentation in hospitals, the medical world can now take advantage of the possibilities offered by mobile Computing, and especially the Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). Indeed, mobile computing provides enough resources to störe data, such äs a patient's entire health record (Figure J). An internet or intranet connection, however, is not always accessible. This means that we have to provide a solution to allow the patient or the doctor to make all the needed modifications offline on his PDA. But only one modification is enough to make the data of the server and the client asynchrounous. This problem exists in all fields of data processing and was solved by a process called the synchronization of data. Thus, äs the patient's health record is stored in XML, the goal of our project is to find a way to synchronize XML files but without the Intervention of the user for typical synchronization problems, like the resolution of conflicts.

Abstract

Introduction To avoid the increasing use of paper documentation in hospitals, the medical world can now take advantage of the possibilities offered by mobile Computing, and especially the Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). Indeed, mobile computing provides enough resources to störe data, such äs a patient's entire health record (Figure J). An internet or intranet connection, however, is not always accessible. This means that we have to provide a solution to allow the patient or the doctor to make all the needed modifications offline on his PDA. But only one modification is enough to make the data of the server and the client asynchrounous. This problem exists in all fields of data processing and was solved by a process called the synchronization of data. Thus, äs the patient's health record is stored in XML, the goal of our project is to find a way to synchronize XML files but without the Intervention of the user for typical synchronization problems, like the resolution of conflicts. Figure 1: The Teltra patient's health record [1] · Patient is the parent node of the node Person. [2] · Julien is a text node. [2] · /Patient/Person/Address[@Nr='l']/Name is the Xpath of the node Name
