A new framework for ubiquitous context-aware healthcare applications

Mantas, G., Lymberopoulos, D. & Komninos, N. (2010). A new framework for ubiquitous context-aware healthcare applications. Proceedings of the IEEE/EMBS Region 8 International Conference on Information Technology Applications in Biomedicine, ITAB, pp. 1-4. doi: 10.1109/itab.2010.5687758


Nowadays, there is a significant lack of generic application frameworks providing third party developers with the appropriate mechanisms for building ubiquitous contextaware healthcare applications over medical heterogeneous networks. In this paper, we propose a new framework integrating context-aware and security mechanisms with mechanisms that allow the ease exploitation of the core networks’ functionality to enable third party developers to build reliable and secure ubiquitous context-aware healthcare applications over medical heterogeneous networks.
