In this paper we describe the system realized for the FIDES project, a research project financed by Tuscany Region in Italy to promote the decentralization of monitoring operations on chronic patients or elderly people. The aim of the project was the implementation of a platform provided with a set of devices measuring all the main vital parameters, to be positioned inside the pharmacies. The parameters, once measured, became available both to the user, allowing him to check his health situation, and to the doctors, allowing the remote monitoring of a patient. The system has been designed to allow the user to perform autonomously part of the measurements, in order to reduce as much as possible the impact of the system on the everyday life of the pharmacy.
