Modern health care systems aim to involve both health professionals and patients. Technologies like the Internet, mobile phones, sensors, etc. enable patients to actively participate in health care processes. Personalization of health services based on the application of portable devices, sensors and actuators offers a real opportunity for practicing high quality wireless personalized shared care. The seminar jointly organized by EFMI WG “Personal Portable Devices (PPD)” and ISO/IEC JTC 1 “Study Group on Sensor Networks (SGSN)” aims at identifying criteria/factors determining the application of personalized portable devices, sensors, and actuators for wireless networked health care and welfare service provision. The topics are based on experiences from national, EU, and international projects, emerging standardization activities, and existing and emerging routine implementations in the domain of personal health care.
