The ongoing efforts toward continuity of care and the recent advances in information and communication technologies have led to a number of successful personal health systems for the management of chronic care. These systems are mostly focused on monitoring efficiently the patient's medical status at home. This paper aims at extending home care services(More)
Sensor networks constitute the backbone for the construction of personalized monitoring systems. Currently, a plethora of sensor networks for diverse pervasive healthcare applications has been proposed and implemented. However, there is a significant lack of open architectures in the field, resulting in closed, non-interoperable, and difficult to extend(More)
In this paper, we present the design and development of a pervasive health system enabling self-management of chronic patients during their everyday activities. The proposed system integrates patient health monitoring, status logging for capturing various problems or symptoms met, and social sharing of the recorded information within the patient's(More)
Patient self-management is often considered as an important prerequisite towards effective healthcare. This viewpoint has recently been demonstrated by the introduction and adoption of approaches and tools, such as the Personal Health Record (PHR). In the current work, the design of a mobile personal health system for logging information corresponding to(More)
BACKGROUND Despite their potential for improving health outcomes, mobile-based home monitoring systems for heart failure have not yet been taken up widely by the patients and providers. OBJECTIVES To design and iteratively move towards a personalised mobile health monitoring system for patients living with heart failure, according to their health care and(More)
The current institution-based model for healthcare service delivery faces enormous challenges posed by an aging population and the prevalence of chronic diseases. For this reason, pervasive healthcare, i.e., the provision of healthcare services to individuals anytime anywhere, has become a major focus for the research community. In this paper, we map out(More)
BACKGROUND Blogs, or websites containing online personal journals, are a form of popular personal communication with immense potential for health promotion. OBJECTIVE Narratives are stories with a beginning, middle, and end that provide information about the characters and plot. Source similarity refers to the degree to which the message source and each(More)
The importance of patients' active participation in healthcare delivery and disease management has been highlighted in various studies, especially for chronic patients. Overall, patient empowerment, guidance and safety constitute concrete goals in modern healthcare systems. To this end, mobile computing technologies can enable to realize such services in a(More)
Various personal health systems have been applied in pervasive health monitoring, in which the need for patient involvement and self-management support with appropriate health information management tools has been highlighted. This paper presents a novel approach towards constructing a personal-ized mobile system, introduced as add-on to existing remote(More)
