Telemedicine is an emerging field that aims at supporting treatment processes across organizational boundaries by providing means for an efficient information exchange between different stakeholders. However, telemedical applications have to cope with complex requirements, e. g. related to data security and privacy aspects that do not contribute to the functionality and usability, but define restrictions, which considerably complicate the development process. In this paper, we present an overview of common demands on telemedical applications based on a detailed examination of practical healthcare scenarios. In order to relieve developers from the burden of implementing applications according to these requirements from scratch, we introduce CHOPIN, a toolbox for composition of telemed ical services into high quality applications. It facilitates reuse and leverage of existing services and components, thus reducing costs and work efforts with each new application that is implemented on the basis of CHOPIN.
