Abstract: There are many reasons to reflect upon the importance of paradigms in healthcare, their explicit use in health system restructuring and the possibility to anticipate the health field evolution with paradigms. For instance, it is known that an improving or restructuring strategy is needed to adapt health systems to major changes in the way of thinking or doing that occurred in the recent years in the health sector and the society. Such changes are often characterized as paradigm shifts where a paradigm is intended as a reference model of fundamental value widely accepted in a particular sector of activity. The paper claims that an explicit use of paradigms can speed up the restructuring process in healthcare. Some paradigms recently transferred from business modelling and engineering to healthcare could be more helpful if explicitly used in health system restructuring. Two recent paradigms in software engineering that will be found particularly useful to health informatics are also int roduced. (More)
