Over the coming decades the demographic changes in the western world makes innovation within the healthcare sector necessary. Patient@home is an international project with the aim of supporting better and faster rehabilitation, more hospitalizations of patients in their own homes, and the increase of patients' active involvement and motivation to take responsibility for their own health.
This seminar will focus on a context aware multi-agent system and the underlying infrastructure, a subproject of the Patient@home project currently under development. The infrastructure will be a central component in the Patient@home platform, because it will facilitate integration of data providers and applications (agents) being developed. The infrastructure relies on an ontology that, in addition to describing knowledge relevant for agent communication, also describes knowledge on the user's location, personality traits, habits, and ICD and ICF classifications - medical coding systems used to describe diseases and functioning. The seminar will discuss how the aforementioned information will constitute a user representation of the patient, and how the user representation will be used to develop a context aware system for the telehealth domain.
The user representation will contain and process personal data about the patient. Hence data privacy is an area to consider in the development of the platform, both in terms of the agents collecting the data, how the data are stored, and how the platform is going to exchange relevant processed data with other healthcare systems when needed to.
