We study the dynamics of reaction-diffusion processes on heterogeneous metapopulation networks where interaction rates scale with subpopulation sizes.

Development and usability of a personalized sensor-based system for pervasive healthcare.

Publication Date: 
Jan 09, 2015

Although a plethora of remote health monitoring systems have been proposed for chronic conditions, the challenge posed by the changing patient needs and the requirement for personalization in health monitoring to move beyond proprietary, difficult to extend, and unsustainable solutions still pert

Development and validation of strategies to test for interoperability of virtual patients.

Publication Date: 
Sep 11, 2009

Interoperability of e-learning resources requires the adherence to specific standards. In the domain of virtual patients (VP) a central role is played by the MedBiquitous' MVP specification and its application profile proposed by the eViP (Electronic Virtual Patients) project.

In a mobile health management system, mobile devices act as the application hosting devices for personal health records (PHRs) and the healthcare servers construct to exchange and analyze PHRs. One of the most popular PHR standards is continuity of care record (CCR).

The potential impact of intelligent systems for mobile health self-management support: Monte Carlo simulations of text message support for medication adherence.

Publication Date: 
Feb 20, 2015

BACKGROUND: Mobile health (mHealth) services cannot easily adapt to users' unique needs.

PURPOSE: We used simulations of text messaging (SMS) for improving medication adherence to demonstrate benefits of interventions using reinforcement learning (RL).

INTRODUCTION: The increased utilization of medical applications for smartphones provides new opportunities for doctors, including ophthalmologists.

Toward energy-efficient and distributed mobile health monitoring using parallel offloading.

Publication Date: 
Oct 10, 2013

Although mobile health monitoring where mobile sensors continuously gather, process, and update sensor readings (e.g. vital signals) from patient's sensors is emerging, little effort has been investigated in an energy-efficient management of sensor information gathering and processing.
