9:15 AM - 9:30 AM Welcome to MobileHealth'11

9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Keynote speech: Personal Networks and Federations for Health.
Speaker: Prof. I.G. Niemegeers, TU Delft, Delft, The Netherlands.
Abstract: ICT supported health-care and health-support at home are promising ways to deal with the rising cost of healthcare, while maintaining or improving its reach and quality. Although the opportunities are clear, there are many hurdles to be taken. Many of them are of an organizational, cultural and economic nature. The technology is in principle available but is employed in an ad hoc way, leading to multiple different systems each aimed at a particular health issue.
We present a generic approach to creating communication platforms that can be used for a variety of health applications, and offer the capabilities of self-organization, security, re-use of resources such as sensors for different purposes, adaptability to context and ease-of-use by all stakeholders: patients, health-care providers and application developers. The approach is based on Personal Networks, an automatically configured, secure and self-maintaining overlay network of personalized devices, and on the concept of Federations that supports secure cooperation between all involved stakeholders. The ideas have been tested in prototypes, and are the subject of standardization activities.
