This paper presents the preliminary results in the development of a framework for ubiquitous monitoring in a Intensive Care Unit environment, which aims at enabling mobile access to real-time bedside monitoring data and to a comprehensive electronic patient's clinical record at any moment in time and from any location, by means of a PDA device capable of secure wireless communications. The main goal of the proposed architecture is to optimise the employment of human resources involved in monitoring activities, while at the same time enhancing the quality of delivered services and improving the level of attention to patients.
