Abstract
Medical environments are dynamic and this affects the way standard processes are accomplished. In recent years, new ideas related to drug tracking, smart medical services, and patient monitoring have been transformed into successful systems. In addition, there are technologies such as: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)[1], Open Service Gateway Initiative (OSGi)[2], Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)[3] that have certainly demonstrated [4][5][6] through different mechanisms that they can enrich medical environments by extending the capabilities to many devices. As a result, there are new trends for applying alternative technologies in order to address hospital communication issues to support future medical services. Medical environments have different requirements that restrict the way new technology, architecture, protocol or system can be integrated into an existing communication model. Therefore, there are some problems regarding interaction between the medical staff and the technology itself. This interdisciplinary fact affects the way AAL is provided to patients or handicapped people whom need support in their own house or in hospitals. This paper is based on a previously proposed architecture [7], where we considered some problems regarding sensors and medical services as well as their integration with legacy hospital networks and processes. This architecture has an open-service model based on OSGi, so new medical services can be deployed without modifying other running applications. In this way, the architecture could be seen as the core of future characteristics provided by an AAL platform.
