Ubiquitous healthcare profile management applying smart card technology

Fengou, M. A., Mantas, G., Lymberopoulos, D. and Komninos, N. (2011). Ubiquitous healthcare profile management applying smart card technology. Paper presented at the Second International ICST Conference, MobiHealth 2011, 5 - 7 October 2011, Kos Island, Greece.


Nowadays, the patient-centric healthcare approach is focused on ubiquitous healthcare services. Furthermore, the adoption of cloud computing technology leads to more efficient ubiquitous healthcare systems. Moreover, the personalization of the delivery of ubiquitous healthcare services is enabled with the introduction of user profiles. In this paper, we propose five generic healthcare profile structures corresponding to the main categories of the participating entities included in a typical ubiquitous healthcare system in a cloud computing environment. In addition, we propose a profile management system incorporating smart card technology to increase its efficiency and the quality of the provided services of the ubiquitous healthcare system.
