In the telehealth domain, caregiver networks provide support to the patient in the community, often through a personal health record (PHR). Current PHR systems typically are used where data and services are delivered through a single integrated data store that limits choice, is a fixed solution, and forces providers to conform to a specific data interface. Sqwelch is a mashup maker that enables trusted collaboration between a caregiver network's members through a virtual, distributed PHR. Sqwelch provides an intuitive means for the caregiver network to create personalized mashups, while the patient retains privacy control through trust specifications.
