Abstract

Inevitably, healthcare goes mobile. Recently developed mobile healthcare (i.e. m-health) services allow healthcare professionals to monitor a mobile patient’s vital signs and provide feedback to this patient anywhere and any time. Due to the nature of current supporting mobile services platforms, mhealth services are delivered with a best-effort, i.e., there are no guarantees on the delivered quality of service (QoS). In this paper, we argue that the use of contextual information in an mhealth services platform improves the delivered QoS. We give a first attempt to merge contextual information with a QoS-aware mobile services platform in the m-health services domain. We illustrate this with an epilepsy tele-monitoring scenario.
