    We present a mobile decision support system (mDSS) which runs on a patient Body Area Network consisting of a smartphone and a set of biosensors. Quality-of-Data (QoD) awareness in decision making is achieved by means of a component known as the Quality-of-Data Broker, which also runs on the smartphone. The QoD-aware mDSS collaborates with a more sophisticated decision support system running on a fixed back-end server in order to provide distributed decision support. This distributed decision support system has been implemented as part of a larger system developed during the European project MobiGuide. The MobiGuide system is a guideline-based Patient Guidance System designed to assist patients in the management of chronic illnesses. The system, including the QOD-aware mDSS, has been validated by clinicians and is being evaluated in patient pilots against two clinical guidelines.
