Mobile health, personalised health records, pervasive computing


Pervasive Electronic Health Record provides important medical history record for an individual within a healthcare system. By using pervasive storage devices, patient’s health records can be accessed electronically by authorized healthcare providers and healthcare professionals in the right place at the right time. However, the research found that not all healthcare practitioners are ready to adopt this approach and mobile technology into their daily work while providing healthcare services to the patients. This is important indicators to be acquired before implementing the technology in the real environment of healthcare.  The aim for this paper is to identify the crucial clinical dataset to be captured and viewed by the healthcare professionals and important design components for mobile personalized health records. The input will indicate that the healthcare professional tend to use the technology. In addition, the collected datasets could be used as input to design mobile personalized health record application.
