Service-Oriented Middleware Architecture for Mobile Personal Health Monitoring

2019-10-27T16:26:24+01:0027th October, 2019|

Developers of applications for health and wellness monitoring are facing a diversity of protocols, standards and communication mechanisms for collecting data from heterogeneous sensors, devices and services, as well as when exporting data to various health and wellness services and systems. The REACTION platform addresses this using a middleware approach which leverages the development tasks to a service-oriented level allowing developers to use open standard technologies like web services. The REACTION SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) approach offers a scalable and interoperable platform for use in different healthcare settings. The REACTION applications are based on numerous individual services that can be developed and deployed to perform clinical monitoring and feedback tasks, execute distributed decision support and security tasks, support work flow management, and perform event handling and crisis management.

Identity management, access control and privacy in integrated care platforms the PICASO project

2019-10-27T16:22:07+01:0027th June, 2018|

The PICASO (“A Personalised Integrated Care Approach for Service Organisations and Care Models for Patients with Multi-Morbidity and Chronic Conditions”) project provides an integration platform for the cross-organizational exchange of electronic health records and care plans to facilitate the closer integration of formal and informal carers and a personalized orchestration of care services. PICASO enables the collaboration of carers across sectors encompassing the entire care continuum from the clinical setting to a patients private home. In this work we discuss how PICASO addresses the security, privacy and trust challenges of the associated cloud based health system

Exploring new Care Models in Diabetes Management and Therapy with a Wireless Mobile eHealth Platform

2019-10-27T16:03:35+01:007th October, 2011|

Due to demographic changes, European healthcare systems face two serious threats: healthcare delivery may become inadequate to perceived needs of the citizens or the cost may spiral out of control. With the decrease in the labour force, there is an urgent need to make more health services mobile allowing citizens with chronic diseases stay longer in the labour markets, reduce the number of lost working days and generally support nomadic working. Mobile technologies have the potential to provide better healthcare while at the same time increasing the working population. However, it calls for dramatic changes of healthcare provisioning and of the care models. The REACTION project develops a mobile, cloud-based platform that provides healthcare services to diabetes patients and caregivers. As part of the project, new chronic care models that support separation of care spaces are proposed.

Business Modelling of Emerging Service Opportunities in the IoTS Ecosystem

2019-10-27T17:01:44+01:0019th September, 2008|

Understanding the business framework in the Internet of Things and Services (IoTS) ecosystem is an essential prerequisite for the successful deployment and exploitation of new services and applications. IoTS infrastructures are often focused on software developers, researchers and technologists, but successful deployment of real-life applications depends on the ability to demonstrate business potential, i.e. realistic and sustainable business cases in selected domains. The present paper aims at describing a theoretical and practical foundation for performing business modelling of complex, multi-stakeholder oriented eBusiness services based on IoTS enablers, such as Hydra middleware components. The main focus of the paper will be on modelling business performance in IoTS applications involving product companies and on how to derive new and innovative value propositions from emerging service concepts.

Ambient Intelligence Support for Tomorrow’s Health Care: Scenario Based Requirements and Architectural Specifications of the eu-DOMAIN Platform

2019-10-27T17:08:44+01:0028th October, 2006|

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is a vision developed in the last years promoting future scenarios where people will be surrounded by intelligent intuitive interfaces that are embedded in all kinds of objects and an environment that will be capable of recognizing and responding to the presence of different individuals in a seamless, unobtrusive and often invisible way. The traditional human-machine interactions will be modified as a consequence of the continuous trend of pushing computing elements in the background in the attempt of increasing the operation automation in an innovative way where traditional user interfaces will not be needed anymore for guiding the user in its interaction with the system. In these future scenarios the traditional computation model will be transformed into a new paradigm where computers will be comprised in the surrounding intelligent environment, able to interact in innovative ways with the common user and dynamically tailored to the user needs, and wireless communication will be more and more used.

Using Conceptual Modeling and Value Analysis to Identify Sustainable m>Business Models in Industrial Services

2019-10-27T16:06:22+01:0027th June, 2006|

The industrial products and service industry is a product oriented industry, where traditional business models based on value chain optimization have been refined over many years. However, in order to increase business value, innovative industrial product companies are increasingly looking for new m-Business services related to their core business. With the emergence of such virtual markets (services, information, knowledge, life-style support, security) we need a new paradigm for understanding and predicting business performance. The concept “value constellation” replaces the value chain. A m-Business model is not sustainable if it lacks a sound economic value proposition to the end-user. In order to analyze and validate value creation in m-Business systems we suggest using a conceptual modeling methodology with proper value ontology. We will demonstrate how such a methodology will allow us to de-compose value offerings with the aim of identifying new stakeholders and new value constellations.

Techniques for validating socio-economic requirements of industrial ambient intelligence service infrastructures

2019-10-27T16:07:01+01:0021st August, 2005|

Ambient Intelligence solutions in the traditional Industrial Service Industry pose a range of societal questions that need to be addressed already during the development phase. The eu-DOMAIN project is using a technique referred to as European Awareness Scenario Workshops (EASW) to stimulate an external assessment through a scenario-type approach. It will also validate the quality of working life, market and social impact as well as the cultural experience of the proposed solution through a participatory method.
