People are increasingly becoming health-conscious and therefore prefer monitoring their health conditions for various reasons (e.g., sports, medical health). Similarly, patients are also keen to utilize bio-sensors that are readily available in the market. As a result, patient driven health care systems are gradually becoming popular among the medical professionals. A patient driven medical health care facility gives access to an enormous amount of data that may revolutionize the existing health and care system. However, there is a little known about how to tap into the potential patient driven knowledge and information in a systematic order. The PatNet project provides some of the stepping stones into this domain of patient and sensor social networks. This project focuses on patient-driven health care models and services. The research examines the potential to both improve traditional healthcare systems and expand the concept of health care through new services. This research rationale outlines the challenges and opportunities that the proposed model shows.
