Abstract

During recent years the number of patients who suffer from chronic diseases has noticeably increased in developed countries. This implies an increase both in costs and resource allocation of the health system and in the commuting frequency to health centers by patients as well. These costs can be reduced by using mobile communication technologies. In addition, these technologies can also be used to improve the patients´ quality of life who suffer from chronic diseases, their relatives and caregivers. However, wireless communications can be affected by interferences generated in the patient’s domestic environment. The work presented in this paper describes an architecture which aims to improve assistance quality using health monitoring services and remote monitoring of patients that suffer from chronic diseases.
