There is a need to develop open sensors and middleware components that allow transparent integration and plug-and-play interoperability of Medical Devices (MDs) and Computer Engines (CEs). The use of standards seems to be the internationally adopted way to solve these problems and allow implementing ubiquitous solutions, including wearable devices, focused on the new paradigm of Personal Health (p-Health). However, to the best of our knowledge, there is no experience where the full chain from personal healthcare environment to Health Centre had been implemented using interoperability standards. Even though there have been some initiatives to combine different standards, the vision of an entire end-to-end standard-based system is not yet a fact end-to-end solution. This paper presents the implementation guidelines of a ubiquitous platform for p-Health. It is end-to-end standards-based, using ISO/IEEE11073 in the patient environment and EN13606 to communicate the information to an Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR) server. The platform has been designed to comply with the last ISO/IEEE11073 and EN13606 available versions and tested in a laboratory environment to demonstrate the feasibility of an end-to-end standard-based solution.
