Paper Abstract

Cooperative working with hypermedia documents has applications in many areas where it is necessary for geographically dispersed people to jointly and interactively converse over a common information pool. Scenarios within the medical sphere include: remote and tele- consultation, remote diagnosis and wide area conferencing. In this paper we outline a cooperative working system (TeCo) for hypermedia documents in the medical sphere. With this background we examine the OSI/ODP concepts necessary when realizing such a system. In particular, we demonstrate the document structure facilities supported by the SGML/HyTime standard to express user needs in viewing and handling documents for specific user roles.
