Event systems can be used both for self-management of the of the components as well as indicating alarms relating to patient health state. Traditional event systems emphasise scalability and complex event dissemination for internet based systems, whereas we are considering ubiquitous systems with wireless communication and mobile nodes which may join or leave the system over time intervals of minutes. Issues such as persistent delivery are also important. We describe the design, prototype implementation, and performance characteristics of an event system architecture targeted at this application domain.</ABSTRACT><URL>http://sdstrowes.co.uk/publications/strowess-ehealth.pdf</URL></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
