Open Data refers to the possibility of freely sharing data among users and organization. Similarly Open Government Initiatives refer to the sharing of documents and data among public governments and citizens. Here we focus on an open initiative held by the Italian Ministry of Health who is making available through Internet a set of Open Data about drug stores, health centers, and other health-related data. In particular, we propose a Cloud-based software tool able to gather and integrate different datasets made available by the Italian Ministry of Health. The proposed Cloud-based tool, called Open Health Data for Tourist (OHT), is able to offer to the tourist information about nearest health care providers (drug stores, public emergency room, hospitals and medical doctors) in Italy through an application accessible from mobile devices.
