The increase of population mobility has been promoting a crescent dispersion of patient clinical records in Healthcare Information Systems. In this scenario, it is mandatory that new services will be available for healthcare practitioners, namely web-based interfaces with strong control access mechanisms providing effective authentication and identification of persons, and the establishment of new access models to the disperse patient information.
This paper proposes and describes a Healthcare Access Model that integrates a new set of functionalities coping with patient mobility and implements an innovative concept of a virtual unique Electronic Patient Record - EPR.
