Multi-Agent Based Software Architecture for Remote Health Monitoring


Objectives: Multi agent Architecture is a recent advancement in software engineering that focuses on improving performance of software packages and tools in varying applications. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Large number of architectures have been proposed for remote health monitoring applications which include data collection from remote patients and monitoring the condition. There is little work done on software systems monitoring multiple patients with multi-parametric approach from remote locations efficiently and faster. This paper presents a multi-agent architecture to monitor concurrently multiple physiological parameters of multiple patients situated at remote places. The architecture proposes three types of software agents such as patient controller interface agent, controller agent and server agent. Real time system can be scaled up to any number of patients being monitored for any variable number of physiological parameters. It is time critical application as the patients being monitored need immediately attention or treatment. Findings: For validating the proposed architecture the data has been collected for Temperature, blood pressure of patients and software agents designed were implemented and tested under multiple combinations of number of parameters and the patients. The test results proved that the proposed architecture is useful for efficient and quick monitoring of severely diseased people from remote places. Application/Improvements Tele-monitoring is widely used in a range of applications such as natural calamities like disaster, floods etc. *Author for correspondence Indian Journal of Science and Technology, Vol 10(35), DOI: 10.17485/ijst/2017/v10i35/118954, September 2017 ISSN (Print) : 0974-6846 ISSN (Online) : 0974-5645
