Application of Semantic Integration Methods for Cross-Agency Information Sharing in Healthcare

Cross-agency Information sharing is a basic feature of digital economy in public sector. Heterogeneous environment is inherent for the public sector as well as for other industries, which are ready to digital transformations. The application of integration methods should guarantee the achievement of unambiguous meaningful interpretation of data. The article represents comparative analysis of basic integration approaches: (1) classic interaction via mediators, (2) integrated data model (XML-based models implementation) and (3) semantic integration. We defined the advantages of semantic integration and confirmed the possibility to use semantic core as a basis for a digital health ecosystem. We implemented the example of semantic integration in healthcare within the project of Plekhanov Russian University of Economics named the “Center of semantic integration”.
