AN ACTIVE APPROACH IN HEALTH MONITORING

Doan B. Hoang, Nor Faizah Ahmad, Congduc Pham

Abstract

Specific-purpose hardware or software modules are often designed to provide timely response to conditions or events that required attention. However, these application-specific mechanisms are not flexible and often can not be reused or adapted to different situations and applications. This paper proposes an approach whereby an active database with triggering mechanisms is deployed for surveillance and health monitoring applications. The paper presents a comprehensive monitoring architecture and an application to demonstrate its use in an Active Maternity Care system.
