With the rapidly growing development of applications in open virtual enterprises, privacy is becoming a critical issue. This paper presents an agentbased architecture that provides coordination services, with special focus on capability-based integration as brokering services. These services take into consideration any privacy desires that may be required from various participants in an open, dynamic, and heterogeneous environment. A proof-ofconcept prototype system has been implemented to support and provide information-gathering services in healthcare environments.
