Intelligent Pervasive Healthcare Systems
The chapter presents the state of the art in intelligent pervasive healthcare applications and the corresponding enabling technologies. It discusses pervasive healthcare systems in either controlled environments (e.g., health care units or hospitals), or in sites where immediate health support is not possible (i.e. the patient’s home or an urban area). Special focus is raised on intelligent platforms (e.g., agents, context-aware and location-based services, and classification systems) that enable advanced monitoring and interpretation of patient status and environment optimizing the whole medical assessment procedure.
