[1][2]Pervasive (ubiquitous) computing is one of the latest technologies in the world of computing. It has become an integral part of communication. In a Pervasive environment, users have thefreedom to connect with any device. This could be anything like mobile phones, laptops, smartphones, terminals and tablets. Pervasive computing revolves around major technologies like operating systems,microprocessors, mobile protocols, advanced middleware, sensors/actuators and the internet. The vision behind Pervasive computing is completely different. In a pervasive environment,devices can act as portals to application-data space. This space is not a traditional repository wherecustom software packages are executed. Instead, it is all about real time connections, data transfersand message interpretations!Case studies on Healthcare & Pervasive ComputingHealthcare Environment 1 – M-Healthcare SystemAccording to recent trends, the need for applications that can send and receive information via wirelesssensor networks has increased drastically. Mobile healthcare systems require many applications to
Pervasive Computing Environments3provide better healthcare of high quality. This is why many healthcare organizations use Mobilehealthcare systems. This is a latest wireless and mobile technology network that helps in theimplementation of efficient healthcare systems. These systems are believe in the use of non-wearable andwearable sensory devices. This proposal can introduce various legal, privacy and security issues. TheWorld Health Organization claims that many people are killed by heart diseases every year. To helppeople with heart diseases, there should be an efficient and sophisticated strategy. This is where pervasivecomputing comes into the picture. Opportunities for Pervasive ComputingWith the advent of smart healthcare facilities, patients will be able to receive premium healthcare servicesat affordable rates. A basic M-Health care system would have the following responsibilities. 1)The M-Health care system can keep track of patient details and family information. 2)The system is designed with emergency buttons that can be used to call family members, doctorsand ambulance. During these calls, Personal Health Information (PHI) should be shared.Proposed Pervasive Computing Environment for M-Health CareAn important module in M-Health care would be “Health Monitoring”. oThis is an important module that holds details of the user’s personal health informationlike temperature, heartbeat, blood pressure, blood sugar and few other critical stats. oThese details can be collected by BSN and stored using Bluetooth. o3G networks can be used to transfer these details to the healthcare center. Medicalprofessionals use these details to provide assistance to patients. oIn case of life threatening situations, doctors will be able to save lives better usingpervasive computing.Body Sensor Network is another important component that transfers data from wearabledevices.
