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 inter-operable 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.
