A Product-Line Approach to Design an Embedded Web System for Healthcare.
With the recent advances in mobile technology and wireless network technology, embedded systems are being widely used in modern society today. Particularly, a home healthcare system is a networked embedded system where the main functions are to control the disease processes and to help patients maintain their independence and maximum level of function within their own homes and communities. It seems to be self-evident to design a system that would support both patients and their healthcare providers in the process of treatment. Nevertheless, little work in integrating embedded devices with internet for the support of patients have been done to date. In this paper, we show how to design a healthcare system for supporting the management of the conditions of patients with chronic diseases. This system is built around wireless networked embedded devices, and integrates the internet technology for telemonitoring the patient’s health and notifying of doctors if emergency action is required. Also, patients themselves may specify personal alerts for condition-related issues.
