Several countries including Australia are developing standards for personal electronic health records, and in many cases the standards provide ways for patients to upload data from their own sensor systems to their electronic health records. This article explores issues relating to the design of systems where electronic medical records are updated with data or meta-data from in-home or on-body health monitoring sensor systems. A prototype system was designed, implemented and subsequently evaluated in a way intended to further understanding regarding collection and transfer of sensor data to an electronic health record. A key issue that arose was the extent to which levels of confidence in the data may be affected by the type, quality, installation, maintenance and calibration of the sensors.
