Abstract: Smart cards play a very important part in facilitating the bioinformatics process. Therefore, patient information services need to re-engineer in the area of e-government information sharing and processing to deliver information appropriately to the citizen. In this study, we provide each patient with a smart card that will hold all their bioinformatics for their entire life based on the proposed domain ontology. It will be recognised and used in all organisations related to e-health. Moreover, it automates the processing of important medical documents, such as pharmacies, hospitals and clinics. The smart card can draw up the history of the patient in terms of illnesses and/or treatments; thus, facilitating the future management of his/her medical files. The proposed ontology offers ease in introducing new bioinformatics for patients' services without moving the structure of the former ontology. The ontology was created with the knowledge-based tool Protégé. It will be useful in the knowledge sharing information for e-health integration.
