|Abstract:||Health monitoring and healthcare provisioning at home (i.e., outside the hospital) have received increasingly
attention as a possible and partial solution for addressing the problems of an aging population. There are still many
technological issues that need to be solved before home
healthcare systems can be really cost-effective and efficient. However, in this paper we will highlight another category of issues which we call architectural challenges. Each patient is unique, and each patient has a unique lifestyle, living environment and course of life. Therefore it should be possible to personalize the services provided by home healthcare systems according to the needs and preferences of each individual patient, and it should be possible to make incremental adaptations at later points in time if this is necessary due to, for example, a changing health condition. The architectural challenges and solution directions related to this has been discussed in this paper.
