The ability to access consistent disease specific information from various hospital workstations and databases has been so far static through the use of services such as email, web application and syncing of information between multiple devices, these however employs the traditional (Client/Server) request and response strategy of retrieving information, and has so far favour telemedicine as a whole, however this comes with its own downside from giving limited information to uncertain authenticity of information. As a result, information access on the move via mobile agent is more than satisfactory. The primary aim of the research is to investigate the way in which Mobile Agent Technologies can be used in order to improve this situation in rheumatology through development of a mobile agent using the JavaScript mobile agent middleware, that is capable of migrating from its host into various hospital databases and workstation to retrieve information pertaining to the rheumatology disease. The mobile agent provides intuitive user interfaces suited with the capabilities to migrate to different end-points and retrieve information on the go. The result however provides a genuine and substantial data from which concrete decision about the disease, patients, a particular hospital and even physician relating to rheumatology can be made.
