Due to the immense volumes of medical data, the architecture of the future healthcare decision support systems focus more on interoperability than on integration. With the raising need for the creation of unified knowledge base, the federated approach to distributed data warehouses (DWH) is getting increasing attention. In this paper we investigate the important requirements of communication architecture of wireless sensor networks, Further, we present a federated DWH model which enables the interoperability between heterogeneous and distributed medical IS, This paper reports on an ongoing research on developing an agent based system architecture for wireless sensor networks. The main objective of this system is to facilitate the design, implementation, and maintaining applications for sensor networks that consist of wireless sensor nodes.
