In this paper, the authors propose a novel method to estimate the accuracy of a decision support system for hypertension monitoring. The decision support system is designed building on a diagnosis standard in medicine, and one decision made by this system depends on both the blood pressure data gathered by medical sensors and some contexts that are manually entered by clinicians. When analyzing the system accuracy, they take into account both the potential sensors' errors and the errors of entering context. In addition, they propose a novel method for the estimation of system accuracy; this method is motivated by the fact that the traditional method to estimate system accuracy would overestimate the system accuracy.
