This paper presents an e-health mobile application, called DITIS, which supports networked collaboration for home healthcare. The system was originally developed with a view to address the difficulties of continuity of care and communication between the members of a home health care multidisciplinary team. The paper introduces the system DITIS, identifies the needs and challenges of co-ordinated teams of multidisciplinary healthcare professionals and discusses relevant computing models for their implementation. The adopted technology as well as the security needs and a multilayer security framework are briefly described. An evaluation study of the system is also briefly presented.
