The application of sensor networking to real-time healthcare monitoring is an important and developing area of research. Key research issues include the design of an adaptable system for information flow from one subset of users of the system (the patients, families, neighbors, etc.) to another (healthcare professionals) and the development of a value-centered design approach that preserves the privacy rights accorded to these users. In any health monitoring system, a patient's privacy is always at risk. We propose MedSN, a continuous health monitoring system, which addresses thelimitations of existing projects. This is achieved through support for an extended set of users with competing interests, integrated with an end-to- end consideration of privacy and security.
