Abstract

The ubiquitous healthcare environment is one of the systems that benefit from wireless sensor network. But one of the challenges with wireless sensor network is its high loss rates when transmitting data. Data from the biosensors may not reach the base stations which can result in missing values. This paper proposes the Health Monitor Agent (HMA) to gather data from the base stations, predict missing values, classify symptom patterns into medical conditions, and take appropriate action in case of emergency. This agent is applied in the Ubiquitous Healthcare Environment and uses data from the biosensors and from the patient’s medical history as symptom patterns to recognize medical conditions. In the event of missing data, the HMA uses a predictive algorithm to fill missing values in the symptom patterns before classification. Simulation results show that the predictive algorithm using the HMA makes classification of the symptom patterns more accurate than other methods.
