Hospitals are convenient settings for deploying pervasive computing technology, but they also raise important privacy concerns. Hospital work imposes significant demands on staff, including high availability, careful attention to patients, confidentiality, rapid response to emergencies, and constant coordination with colleagues. These demands shape the way hospital workers experience and understand privacy. In addition, healthcare professionals experience a high level of mobility because they must collaborate with colleagues and access information and artifacts distributed throughout the premises. Autonomous agents can help developers design privacy-aware systems that handle the threats raised by pervasive technology
