Hospital systems are heterogeneous and the clinical information scattered. The development of a clinical information system to integrate the information among hospitals and make legacy systems cooperate is thus difficult. For efficient clinical information management and system integration, clinical data, patient data privacy and integration of records need to be well organized and conform to relevant standards. In this paper we develop an agent-based intelligent clinical information system for

These agents reside on a multiagent platform which provides communication and invocation of execution functionality. We adopt HL7 standards for both clinical data and web services, in order to provide a userenvironment via the internet.
