In recent years, the providers of public and private sector health care services have been faced with some radical changes in the society they serve, and more importantly, development in the way that traditional health care is delivered to Information Technology (I.T) based communities. It is widely believed by health care professionals that the better health care results really come from the improved healthcare systems and more effective health care services' management. This paper focuses on using an agnet-based software engineering approach and design models to the development of an appropriate agent-based healthcare software system is described in which software researchers collaborate with environment builders to enhance the levels of cooperation and support provided within an integrated agent-based community healthcare system.
