Abstract

IT is deeply modifying the medical practices: Cloud-based solutions, including Social Computing, are growing in the medical field. However, this emergence of utility computing such as Cloud Computing makes the current desktop metaphor outdated. There is a need to open the desktop so that to, in addition to classical data, also consider actors and tasks as well as their relationships. This paper proposes the concept of “Pearl” for both denoting and representing socially augmented data. It describes a health care prototype as well as a formal definition of the related concept.
