Agent and Mobile Tools for Telehomecare in Developing Countries: An Architecture Approach
Keywords:Telehomecare, Inter-Agent Communication, Electronic Medical Record, Information and Communication Technologies,
Nowadays, in the networked health, mobile tools are increasingly important, to provide care, educate patients or to transmit remote information. Telehomecare evolves constantly. It can aid disabled persons, increase patient compliance, enhance caregivers’ effectiveness, and connect socially isolated individuals to their care providers. In this perspective, the agent paradigm proposes interesting concepts for the development of telehomecare information systems, such as the control autonomy, decentralization and coordination. This paper describes an architecture of telehomecare based on agents and mobile tools.
