The verification and validation of information system models impact on the adequacy and appropriateness of using the value of telemedicine services for continuously optimizing healthcare outcomes. We have defined a methodology to help the modeling and rigorous analysis of the requirements of information systems in telemedicine. On one hand, this methodology will be based on a formal representation of requirements (systemic, generic domain, etc.) within a knowledge base that will be a requirements repository. On the other hand, this methodology will use conceptual graphs for the formalization of ontology of activities and the production of arguments related to the formal verification of models built from this ontology. We describe an example illustrating the engagement of conceptual graph procedures to model the contextual situations in the telemedicine development. We also discuss the way in which ethical issues will actually take place in telemedicine applications.
