Executive Summary

This paper presents the research in the design and implementation of a framework for cost cutting electronic healthcare delivery services for rural/suburban communities. This is achieved through the development of a semantic web services framework that would be deployed to provide wireless mobile healthcare delivery services and health management services for rural African communities. Currently no e-health application making use of semantic web services are known or reported in literature to have been implemented in any real life situation in Africa. The product of this research will be deployed in some selected rural communities in south-western Nigeria. Software artifacts will be implemented on the proposed framework. The software will be deployed for use by patients and healthcare practitioner in some selected hospitals in south-western Nigeria.
