Abstract
In medical analysis field, patients often must visit a multitude of laboratories related web sites in order to check availability, booking, prices, result duration, and find the nearest laboratory. Thus, these varieties of reasons to visit the web sites make limitations on the usability of them. However, to overcome these limitations, this paper proposes a Virtual Medical Analysis Laboratory (VMAL) prototype system which will be based on applying the Semantic Web Services (SWSs) for scheduling outpatient tests in order to discover the suitable laboratory. Furthermore, the proposed prototype will also be based on the Web Service Modeling Ontology (WSMO)
