The objective of this project was to study the area of generic transfer of comprehensive medical data.The work presented in this thesis had as its main premise the belief that generic transfer of comprehensive medical data will help towards the goal of better healthcare particularly in an environment of shared care. It studied the main methods of data transfer available at present, and as a result carried out an in depth review of one such method adopted by the National Health Service (NHS). Criticism of this method was made. These criticisms lead on to the development of an alternative method of generic data transfer based on an emerging European standard for the storage of medical data. This in turn led on to the consideration of data in legacy systems. Finally, an evaluation of the developed method was undertaken.
