A Distributed Cyber-Based Information Distillation and Control Architecture for Wireless Healthcare Systems
Cyber-physical space, characterized by the seamless integration of wired and wireless networking technologies, embedded computer systems, sensor and actuator technologies, enable ordinary people to richly interact with their environment. The health-care domain presents many promising applications for cyber-physical space, such as patient information management, real-time emergency reporting, elder living assistance, etc. However, although many component technologies needed for realizing such a health-care based cyber-physical space are available, a robust and effective architecture with novel management protocols implemented which synthesizes these separated components to cooperatively work in a predicted way is missing. This paper proposes a distributed, and effective heterogeneous architecture to make up such a gap, emphasizing on patient information retrieval, real-time monitoring and instant re-actions.
