In many telemonitoring ecosystems smartphones are used. They capture vital signs from specified medical devices and send them to specified medical service centers. Smartphone applications for different mobile operating systems are not interoperable. Thus, telemonitoring ecosystems using different smartphone models are mostly not interoperable as well.
In the Ambient Assisted Living project EmotionAAL, we developed the Plug&Care Connector, a pluggable telemonitoring technology. It allows to setup telemonitoring ecosystems, that are interoperable as well as flexible concerning the used kind of medical devices and service backends.
The Plug&Care Connector is designed in a way that it can connect any kind of device to any kind of service backend. Furthermore, it runs on different mobile and desktop operating systems. Besides the ability to transmit data of medical devices to remote services it also allows to share measured data with other applications on the same smartphone.
