Abstract

Knowledge sharing has become an important issue that challenges the efficient healthcare delivery in eHealth system. It also rises as one of the mostdemanding applications with reference to dynamic interactivities among various healthcare actors (e.g. doctors, nurses, patients, relatives of patients). Inthis paper, we suggest an activity theory based ontology model to represent various healthcare actors. The goal of the suggested model is to enhance inte-ractivities among these healthcare actors for conducting more efficient knowledge sharing, which helps to design eHealth system. To validate the feasibilityof suggested ontology model, three typical use cases are further studied. A questionnaire based survey is carried out and the corresponding survey resultsare reported, together with the detailed discussions. / <p>open access</p>
