Abstract: Healthcare systems are very diverse, distributed and complex systems in nature. A healthcare system of systems (HSoS) can be defined as a collection of independent, large scale complex, distributed systems. HSoS exhibit operational and managerial independence, geographic distribution and evolutionary development. An SoS perspective is imperative in order to realize network centric healthcare operations. This paper discusses the different components of HSoS, presents concepts of network-centric healthcare and the World Health Information Grid (WHIG).
