We have designed an ontological environment that makes provisions for choosing adequate devices for remote monitoring of patients who are suffering from poststroke health complications. We argue that nonfunctional requirements in e-health systems, designed for remote patient monitoring, can be managed through semantics stored in ontological models and reasoning performed on them. Our contribution is twofold: (1) we address the pervasiveness of e-health systems by choosing devices embedded in them, and through patients' expectations in terms of having access to pervasive health services personalized to their needs; and (2) we enrich the specification of nonfunctional requirements for remote patient monitoring by highlighting their role in the development of e-healthcare systems.
