Healthcare emergences and large scale disastersare two of the most critic scenarios of healthcare system.Such scenarios require a support that must be distributed,context-aware, reactive and autonomous. This paper presentsan architectural approach for coordination based on the multiagenttechnology. In the following, we will show how agentsbehaviour best fits to these requirements and how can beefficiently applied to these problems. In this paper we propose aframework, called Ubimedic2, that enables the implementationof Multi-Agent Systems for emergency management. Theframework is FIPA compliant and based on the BDI technology.
