eHealth is an emerging area that boosts up with advancement in Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Due to variety of eHealth solutions developed by different IT firms with no unified standards, interoperability issue has raised. In this paper, a case study in Blekinge County healthcare organizations has been conducted for understanding the contexts of eHealth interoperability issues. Then a peer-to-peer (P2P) model based on JXTA platform is implemented to solve the identified
