	%X The paper shows how the CASMAS modeling language,
and its associated pervasive computing architecture, can be
used to facilitate continuity of care by providing members of patientcentered
communities of care with a support to cooperation and
knowledge sharing through the usage of electronic documents and
digital devices. We consider a scenario of clearly fragmented care to
show how proper mechanisms can be defined to facilitate a better
integration of practices and information across heterogeneous care
networks. The scenario is declined in terms of architectural components
and cooperation-oriented mechanisms that make the support
reactive to the evolution of the context where these communities
operate.
