Computer Supported Collaborated Work-related (CSCW) applications is becoming a trend for most business and organizations. A big challenge is to deploy an efficient CSCW system where the communication media is wireless, users are mobile and uses mobile devices with limited capabilities. A sector that utilizes such CSCW systems is the healthcare domain. Due to the sensitive area of healthcare provision, additional features are needed in a CSCW system like virtual teams, appropriate computational model for the eHealth domain, dynamic creation of collaboration workflows, proactive diaries and automatic triggered events upon time expiration. This thesis presents such a CSCW system that support these features not only within an organization but across organizations as well. It also provides evaluation and feedback from its application in a real world environment, thus demonstrating its applicability and effectiveness.
