Improving High Availability and Reliability of Health Interoperability Systems

The accessibility and availability of patient clinical information are a constant need. The Agency for Interoperation, Diffusion and Archive of Medical Information (AIDA) was then developed to ensure the interoperability among healthcare information systems successfully. AIDA has demonstrated over time the need for greater control over its agents and their activities as the need for monitoring and preventing of its machines and agents.

This paper presents monitoring and prevention systems that were developed for machines and agents, which allow not only prevent faults, but also watch and evaluate the behaviour of these components through monitoring dashboards. The Biomedical Multiagent Platform for Interoperability (BMaPI) implemented in a public hospital (PH) revealed provide the necessary data and functionalities capable to manage and to monitor agents' activities. It was found that the prevention systems identified critical situations successfully, contributing to an increase in the integrity and availability of AIDA implemented in a PH.
