Standard for Personalized eHealth Services

Abstract

Stimulated by the rapid development in ICT, wireless communication and sensor development, patient care is moving out of the institution and into the personal realm. The move requires that eHealth systems should be tailored to the user, including personalization and adaptation to user context. This paper describes ongoing work to establish a standard for such personalization. The standard builds on the user's preferences and current situation, which together define the current user profile. This profile can then be used by eHealth services and devices to ensure a user experience tailored to each person and situation. The work surveys relevant areas of personalization, like identity management, profile management etc, addressing those aspects of personalization that are specific to eHealth: user capabilities, care provider roles and functions, health related information, and confidentiality measures.
