In aims to increase the efficiency of distributed multimedia medical databases in terms of clinical consulting process, we propose a multimedia medical database component for a dialysis telemedicine application to manage external data access using distributed middleware standardizations. External data access to distributed multimedia medical databases consists of a collection of software components that interact with each other using a common set of system-level interfaces defined by DCOM and CORBA. External data access interfaces consist of individual DCOM and CORBA interfaces, a DCOM-CORBA connection interface, and DCOM/CORBA interfaces to legacy data. With our current focus on the seamless integration of component and non-component programs in medical databases, we support a telemedicine system which allows the distribution of multimedia medical data.
