Abstract

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.
