A UPNP-BASED VIDEOCONFERENCE SYSTEM TO SUPPORT HOME TELECARE SERVICES

Jaime Martín, Mario Ibañez, Natividad Martínez Madrid, Ralf Seepold

Abstract

This paper presents a home healthcare system that implements videoconference calls based on the UPnP standard to support telecare services. Firstly, it reviews the state of the art of telecare and applied technologies. Our approach describes a system architecture that provides capabilities to integrate different telecare services in a residential gateway. It addresses the challenge of the integration of patient relatives and friends in the telecare service to enhance the user’s confidence. We propose a videoconference system to communicate healthcare actors (patient, nurse, doctor and relatives) based on a widespread standard that enables an automatic discovery of multimedia services and presents a seamless streaming negotiation.
