This position paper proposes an architecture for implementation of a storage and retrieval system in a mobile healthcare system. It is part of the IHISM-ISRA architecture that has been previously proposed and formulated. In this work we aim to present a text based retrieval system which acts as the first step towards the implementation of IHISM-ISRA with plans to adapt to multimedia environment in the future. The paper covers the technical requirements in the design of the storage and retrieval system.
