This paper presents a Peer to Peer (P2P) agent coordination framework for the exchange of Electronic Health Records (EHR) between health organisations that comply with the existing interoperability standards as proposed by the Inte-grating Healthcare Enterprise (IHE). Every health organi-sation represents a community in a P2P network and uses a set of autonomous agents and a set of distributed coordina-tion rules to coordinate the agents in the search of specific health records. To model the interactions among commu-nities, the framework uses the tuple centre agent commu-nication model and semantic web technologies. In order to illustrate the scalability of our approach, we evaluate the proposed solution in distributed settings.
