Abstract

“Nomadic” patients are people who, mainly for work, move around the world very often. Such people have the right to an effective, safe, fast health-care assistance wherever they are. Some technological devices are currently being experimented, in order to let personal health-related information be portable and easily transferable. However, each of these devices follows an idiosyncratic concept. An explorative study has been carried out in order to understand which procedures, if any are currently being used in Italy to manage nomadic patients' data. The goal of this work was to outline a concept of information architecture for an efficient technological support device, essential to the transfer of medical data.
