Abstract. The iCARDEA Patient Empowerment Framework (PEF) provides a core architecture supporting services for patient empowerment and a Personal Health Record (PHR) system. The iCARDEA PEF supports key issues of patient empowerment such as managing the patients own health data, offering access to relevant health information, enabling self-management and facilitating a trustful patient-physician relationship. Additionally, the iCARDEA PEF architecture should emphasize interoperability and integration features to support patient empowerment functionalities with other personal health applications.
