PURPOSE The goal of this work is to contribute to personalized clinical management in home-based telemonitoring scenarios by developing an ontology-driven solution that enables a wide range of remote chronic patients to be monitored at home. METHODS Through three stages, the challenges of integration and management were met through the ontology(More)
An ontology-based approach to deal with data and management procedure integration in home-based scenarios is presented in this paper. The proposed ontology not only provides a means to represent exchanged data but also to unify the way of accessing, controlling, evaluating and transferring information remotely. The structure of this ontology has been(More)
This paper presents the design and implementation of an architecture based on the integration of simple network management protocol version 3 (SNMPv3) and the standard ISO/IEEE 11073 (X73) to manage technical information in home-based telemonitoring scenarios. This architecture includes the development of an SNMPv3-proxyX73 agent which comprises a(More)
This paper presents a methodological approach to the design and evaluation of an interface for an ontology-based system used for designing care plans for monitoring patients at home. In order to define the care plans, physicians need a tool for creating instances of the ontology and configuring some rules. Our purpose is to develop an interface to allow(More)
This paper presents the design and implementation of an architecture based on the combination of ontologies, rules, web services, and the autonomic computing paradigm to manage data in home-based telemonitoring scenarios. The architecture includes two layers: 1) a conceptual layer and 2) a data and communication layer. On the one hand, the conceptual layer(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this paper is to report and discuss a successful experience in the setting up of a telemedicine solution for remote video-electroencephalography consultation (tele-EEG) in La Rioja, Spain. The setup has been implemented between a primary hospital situated in Calahorra (Calahorra Hospital Foundation, FHC) and a secondary hospital in(More)
