In this paper we describe a distributed architecture that could be used to link emergency medical centres, hospitals, telephone operators, and ambulances into a hybrid Peer-to-Peer (P2P) and Grid system for the sharing of information and transport of data. Distributed computing techniques can be used to connect static and mobile systems, bringing the different tools, expertise and databases together to aggregate patient data "on-the-fly" and then integrate it into a situation and context-specific patient-centred virtual environment. The scenario presented in this paper encapsulates connecting mobile tools and medical devices from ambulances, enabling data transfer to medical centres, and aggregating patient data from numerous sources. The proposed P2G (Peer-to-Grid) framework consolidates Peer-to-Peer and Grid computing research by addressing the mobility of transiently connected devices while supporting interactive configurability of components for dynamic data-driven distributed paramedical scenarios.
