In the past decades, telemedicine applications have been widely recognized as a key technology to solve many problems faced by our aging society. Being part of this technological move, Mobile Patient Monitoring Systems (MPMSs) have attracted a great deal of attention due to its fitness on providing less intrusive and long-lasting telemedicine services. The first main contribution of this thesis is a set of task assignment algorthms designed for MPMSs. We propose two graph-based polynomial-time algorithms which deal with the "chain-chain assignment"and the "three-star assignment". When the targeted MPMS complies to such models, we recommend the use of these graphbased algorithms that can find the optimal solutions.
