Medical Informatics, Knowledgebased Systems and Peer2Peer Application.


A Referent Tracking System (RTS) is an application that manages a database containing data that represent real world entities, where each such entity is assigned a singular and globally unique ID. The application stores references to: (1) individual entities that exist in reality, (2) the relationships that obtain between these entities, (3) the universals instantiated by these entities and (4) terms from terminologies used in their description. In this paper, we describe the architecture of an RTS application, built by using the Peer 2 Peer (P2P) paradigm, that enables the data to be shared over distributed Peers running at geographically different locations.
