Abstract: In healthcare contexts, performance improvement is always one of the top priorities for stakeholders. The performance improvement history demonstrates outcomes of applying lots of techniques and approaches to enhance performance in different healthcare dimensions. However, due to the increasing use of computer-based solutions in healthcare, performance of technology solutions has been also a critical dimension which should be improved. Therefore, considering the importance of healthcare technology solutions performance, this chapter outlines how service-oriented architecture can facilitate performance improvement using well-known methods of Lean Thinking. In addition, this study tries to identify key architectural requirements in order to propose a conceptual model based on key concepts of these methods.
