P-Health, a future health model that can be described as a 6-P's paradigm, aims to provide low cost and high quality health care via redesigning care practice and networking information systems at different levels. To realise p-Health, a multi-level health information system has to be developed for the processing, storage, transmission, acquisition and retrieval (P-STAR) of health information that spans multiple temporal and spatial scales and consists of multi-modality. This paper uses wearable devices, which have to be miniaturised, integrated, networked, digitalised, smart and standardised (MINDSS), as examples to illustrate how two or more P-STAR technologies are integrated together to implement a specific health care application under p-Health. In particular, standardisation of MINDSS devices that required a new measurement principle, such as the calibration procedure of cuff-less blood pressure measurement devices, is discussed.
