DRAFT (not meant for distribution) Abstract-- Current innovation in healthcare processes focuses on improving the time to treatment. This paper addresses the benefits of telematic services and mobile & wireless devices such as vital sign sensors and head mounted cameras for healthcare processes. It explores the requirements for a distributed healthcare environment of Body Area Networks of the mobile devices which are connected by wireless (public) networks (e.g. GPRS and UMTS) to healthcare centres. Enterprise models which separate organisational healthcare modelling concerns, such as separation of medical roles from the agents acting in these roles, and which are expressed in terms of the Unified Modelling Language are developed to identify and justify the requirements. The models proposed are applied onto a trauma team scenario to derive the requirements of emergency services of improved time to treatment in the telematic supported environment. Keywords-- ODP enterprise modelling, UML healthcare models, body area networks, wireless telematic services. I
