English abstract:
This work presents an experience report on the evolutionary
development of a software product line (SPL) in the eHealth
domain. The effort was triggered by the concurrent devel-
opment of two similar products and the ambition to reduce
redundant development and quality assurance. The result is
a scalable base for a complex, highly adaptable information
system. This system is required to be applicable in multiple
business domains and diverging environments ranging from
large scale hospitals to single practitioner clinics.
During this effort we were able to extract the common
denominator in the form of core assets from existing appli-
cations specific to a medical field. For customisations well
defined variation points were developed. Our solution allows
for easy implementation of medical documentation require-
ments compared to tedious development of new applications
from scratch. It significantly reduced the necessary devel-
opment effort and time to market. The resulting core doc-
umentation platform can be used for an arbitrary medical
field completely eliminating the dependence on the specific
customer domain.
