Availability of public places. telemedicine solutions in characteristics of the systems, important heterogeneous information and emergent developments are extracted. The amount of the sensed data is very vast and complex, due to the large number and types of sensors which are continuously monitored in order to collect data over long periods of time. All those multiple entities have different goals, making the integration and system governance a critical issue. Success in telemedicine system of systems requires recognition, effective management,and exploitation of emergence.
