AbstractThe interconnection of heterogeneous data sources could provide a comprehensive picture of health parameters, thereby triggering an intervention by the medical staff upon detection of conditions that may lead to health deterioration, thus realizing preventive care. Supported Internet of Things technologies can be used to allow health related information to be locally aggregated and transmitted for remote monitoring and response. We present MyHealthAvatar (MHA), a personal digital health related collection bag, carried by individual citizens throughout their lifetime able to sustain in a meaningful manner all collected information. MHA acts as a unique companion continually following and empowering citizen and patients through a number of health related services. We describe the efforts on creating MHA patient-centered healthcare services for accessing, collecting and sharing long term multilevel personal health data through an integrated environment including: clinical data, genetic data, medical sensor data and devices, human behavior data and activity data for clinical data analysis, prediction and prevention for the individual citizen.
