Abstract [en]

This paper presents information and communication system technological development towards personalized and pervasive healthcare systems. In the recent years, information and communication technology has been providing an innovative health care solution to the society. With the massive increase in aging and stressed population, the health care solutions necessitate the use of more in-home monitoring and tracking system. In this paper, we have gathered the data from early 1970s to present date in terms of information and communication technology’s developments, use of wireless communication systems, and state-of-art of body area sensor network in personalized and pervasive health care. We have also put an effort to present our work in developing a robust, privacy compliant, accurate and cost-effective system that facilitates monitoring of patient status, patient activity and compliance with therapy. The proposed system will also be capable in developing patient-oriented services to support patient empowerment, self-care, adherence to care plans and treatment at the point of need.
