Developing a systems and informatics based approach to lifestyle monitoring within eHealth: part I- technology and data management
MetadataShow full item record
Lifestyle monitoring forms a subset of telecare in which data derived from sensors located in the home is used to identify variations in behaviour which are indicative of a change in care needs. Key to this is the performance of the sensors themselves and the way in which the information from multiple sources is integrated within the decision making process. The paper therefore considers the functions of the key sensors currently deployed and places their operation within the context of a proposed multi-level system structure which takes due cognisance of the requisite informatics framework.
