MetadataShow full item record
As personal health care devices like blood pressure monitors, glucose monitors, thermometers are becoming more intelligent, with wireless communication abilities, there exists a huge potential for mobile applications that can aid users in their home health care. These mobile applications can talk wirelessly to the health devices via protocols like Bluetooth, Zigbee etc. and simplify daily tasks for users like logging daily readings, creating alerts, reminders, tracking supplies, messaging care-providers etc. This report will explore the design and architecture for the development of such a mobile application. A remote, integrated, web service can provide storage, web access, and analysis for the data, retrieved by the application, from personal health devices. The report will explore IEEE standards that define a standard format for information exchanged to/from these devices. It will also delve into security and privacy considerations in the system for patient health data.
