In this paper, we focus on the problem of constructing an information gain model for stroke prevention in Ubiquitous Healthcare (U-Health) Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs). We have constructed an information-based probabilistic relation model among the key indicators and sequenced their data gathering priority and precedence in the WBAN. Then, we constructed a cost function over the energy expenditure involved in their data gathering, and expressed the relationship between utility gain and energy loss as a constrained optimization problem. We also designed an algorithm to carry out the proposed approach. Through simulation study, we demonstrated the validity of some aspects of the approach.
