Remote health care monitoring is a promising technology to make health care more efficient and cost-effective. A crucial aspect of remote health care monitoring is interaction protocols that govern how alert and information messages are delivered to patients and health care professionals. Proper interaction protocols are essential in ensuring that not only the right messages are delivered to the right receiver in a timely manner but also that the intended actions are understood and carried out and any entailed exceptions are taken care of. In this paper, we discuss various issues in designing interaction protocols for remote health care monitoring. We also present a prototype implementation of an interaction protocol. A simple case study is shown to illustrate how the prototype works in a real-life scenario. © 2010 IADIS.
