Abstract: Enterprise Architecture (EA) is an appropriate tool for business and IT alignment. It is also possible to use EA for design and implementation of healthcare applications, since it has the potential to represent healthcare processes effectively. Our research aim is to develop an EA framework for managing contextual knowledge by exploiting object location deduction technologies in healthcare processes that involve the movement of patients. Such a framework is intended to facilitate healthcare managers in adopting location deduction technologies for patient care resulting in improvements in clinical process management and healthcare services.
