Title: COPD context-aware healthcare systems


The separation of concerns as a conceptual paradigm aims to manage the complexity of the software systems by dividing them into different concerns and aspects. The benefits of this paradigm such as adaptability, reusability and maintenance, have been key drivers of its adoption and usability, particularly in healthcare systems. Developing a system with adaptive, flexible and maintainable architecture requires modularity because we must be able to design a flexible system that allows us to make decisions based on context of patients. In the emerging healthcare architectures, the fundamental characteristic of healthcare applications is their ability to adapt or to react according to the information of the patient’ context. In this talk, I will describe briefly three adaptation approaches, such as i) static (Aspect-oriented Programming), ii) Configuration (Spring), and iii) dynamic composition (OSGi) and parameters (MAPE). Then, I will illustrate dynamic approach to support adaptability of COPD diseases. In addition, I will give an overview and results of our context-aware healthcare systems.
