PERIMETER at HealthCom 2010

Gemma Power (WIT) will be presenting at the HealthCom 2010 conference next week.
This is the 12th International Conference on e-Health Networking, Application & Services IEEE Healthcom 2010 event and it takes place in Lyon France on 1-3 July 2010.
The presentation will centre around our accpeted PERIMETER paper entitled “Seamless Mobile Communications for mHealth”, which examines the use of mobile devices and technologies within the PERIMETER project in providing seamless mobile communications for mHealth. In particular, PERIMETER makes use of smart phones with intelligent sensors with sensing capabilities such as GPS location, proximity and accelerometers to create a mobile wireless sensor network to ensure sensitive health related information can be transferred in a seamless and timely fashion across different selected high quality network connections. This presentation will take place in Session 2 on “mHealth for Emergency Management” on July 1st. The paper will also be published in the Journal of eHealth Technology and Application to be distributed at the Healthcom2010 conference.
The conference is a very interesting one with sessions on Enabling Technologies, Enabling Information Systems, Enabling Applications, mHealth for Independent Living, mHealth for Emergency Management and U-Health. The full program is available here.
