Abstract

The Lucania – Medici in Rete (LuMiR) project aims to support the changing environment in the Italian National Health Systems, embodying a shift from organisation-centric to patient-centric services in the Basilicata Region. The primary objective of the LuMiR project is to foster collaborative, cross-organizational and patient-centric healthcare processes, supporting them with a suite of e-services for patient related clinical information communication and sharing among active stakeholders. It also aims to provide ICT support for other business activities. In the paper the methodology adopted in the LuMiR system design and development is described. It is a three-phased development process adopted to comply with institutional constraints and to better support a gradual change in the daily working practice of healthcare professionals called to use ever more sophisticated healthcare applications. The LuMiR system realization is in progress and its current state is also presented.
