Abstract


Ubiquitous computing based on high speed internet and mobile devices facilitate dramatically new possibilities in the health care sector. Patients with rare chronic diseases, often living far away from the medical center, benefit from telemedicine and telemonitoring in particular. We describe how a telemonitoring platform called “smart medication” developed by medical and IT experts can improve the care of patients with the rare chronic disease haemophilia. The study reports the experience of developing, implementing, testing and operating the platform in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We point out functional and non-functional requirements as well as barriers of mobile application development used for the health care sector. Our findings emphasize that patients adapt to telemonitoring systems quickly, that the use of adequate technology reduces health care costs and increases the life-quality of patients substantially.
