Abstract

Ubiquitous Healthcare (u-Healthcare) is a collaborative process incorporating work from diverse fields of computer engineering as well as the knowledge from medical science domain. One of the main targeting services of u_Healthcare is to enable people to live independently longer through the early detection and prevention of chronic disease and disabilities. To provide robust healthcare services, recognition of patient daily life activities is very important. Real-time daily life activities with context information can help in better services of overall system. Now-a-days with increasing life standards and styles, people are more interested in their better health and desire healthy life. This resulted in increase of cost for life care or healthcare system. To maintain quality and availability level of healthcare services with minimum cost, a powerful, flexible, and cost-effective infrastructure for healthcare services that can fulfil the vision of ubiquitous healthcare (u-healthcare) is required. Cloud Computing can potentially provide huge cost savings, flexible high-throughput, and ease of use for different services as well as for healthcare services. For this reason, we have developed a platform architecture, called Secured Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) - integrated Cloud Computing for u-Life Care (SC3). Different wireless sensors are deployed that collect real-time data and transmit that to Cloud Server through Cloud Gateway. Based on this real-time data collected by different sensors, SC3 provides real-time home care and safety monitoring services, information sharing and exchange facility, emergency connection services, and patient monitoring and care services.
