A Context-Aware Healthcare Architecture for the Elderly

  title={A Context-Aware Healthcare Architecture for the Elderly},
  author={Tolulope Peter Oyekanmi and Nhat-Hai Nguyen and Vangalur S. Alagar},
In order to provide dependable healthcare services for the elderly, it is necessary to have a patient-centric system in which service automation dominates through the use of context-awareness. Healthcare service automation has the virtues to overcome the disadvantages arising from the disabilities that are inherent in the elderly population, physically challenged, and those who live in remote areas. In order that patients trust the healthcare services provided by the system, the creation of…
