Health Information Systems in industry are undergoing a paradigm shift in uniformity. The needs for health professionals to utilise universal patient records require various legacy health applications to be integrated in a logical, orderly process. The Smart Hospital Management System is an infrastructure solution that seeks to unify health patient management subsystems together while retaining the existing performance and reliability requirements of the individual subsystems. The infrastructure oriented application of The Open Group Architecture Framework, presented in this research work, ensures that integrity and an enterprise-level perspective is considered throughout the development process. This includes a consideration of the problem space and scenarios, constraints, requirements, risks, enablers and inhibitors of the legacy application architectures. The proposed integration solution with TOGAF components, addresses the need for health institutions to unify their legacy operations in a consistent and best practise compliant manner to ensure universal patient records are thorough, comprehensive and provide robust security mechanisms to make certain that privacy regulation compliance and protection against identity theft are vital.
