Interoperability is a collaborative and multifaceted task to overcome the problems of incompatibilities among organizations, structures, data, architecture, services, and business rules. To achieve interoperability, the aspect for interoperability and requirements for applications and services must be known. SC3 provides Ubiquitous Life Care (u-Life care) for robust healthcare services, service suggestions, and change in system behaviour for better care with low cost. Focus of this paper is on service level semantic interoperability for u-life care to overcome the limitations of publishing the service schema, expose all the service level interfaces, and hardcode data interpretation and manipulation by extending the standards of HL7 protocol for domain specific services. Service level semantic and process level interoperability framework architecture is proposed to achieve proper communication of clients and third party services with SC3. By incorporating semantic interoperability with the use of ontology, we reduced the interoperability stack to three levels. This helped in reducing its complexity and helped in intelligent processing of request and redirection of request to appropriate hosts.
