Abstract Healthcare organizations operate within a network of governments, insurers, inspection services and other healthcare
organizations to provide clients with the best possible care. The parties involved must collaborate and are accountable to each
other for the care provided. This has led to a diversity of administrative processes that are supported by a multi-system
landscape, resulting in administrative burdens among healthcare professionals. Management methods, such as Enterprise
Architecture (EA), should help to develop and manage such landscapes, but they are systematic, while the network of
healthcare parties is dynamic. The aim of this research is therefore to develop an EA framework that fits the dynamics of
network organizations (such as long-term healthcare). This research proposal outlines the practical and scientific relevance
of this research and the proposed method. The current status and next steps are also described.
