Research on Intelligent Systems and context-based information fusion has matured during the last decade and many effective applications of this technology are now deployed. Context-based information fusion provides large quantities of information obtained from network sensors with heterogeneous characteristics, that needs to be efficiently processed. This paper proposes an intelligent system aimed at processing context information in health care environments. The system monitors patients and maintains a permanent fix on their location within a given context. The system uses information provided by sensors distributed throughout the environment. The intelligent agents take the information they receive and fuse it to improve the decisions and actions involved in their processing. This paper describes the proposed approach, focusing on the solutions provided by the agents through the information flow for the system.
