Andreea Ionas , Andreas Meier , Ciprian Pop , Marco Savini and Henrik Stormer


A large number of people already own a mobile phone. In the eHealth area, the usage of this mobile device is becoming more and more popular. Patients can install small applications on their devices that help or guide them in certain situations. Additionally, the mobile devices can be used to transmit all kind of physiological parameters electronically. These parameters are stored on a special server. By analyzing the data, patients can be alerted when the parameters are becoming bad. This paper presents the eSana framework that was developed as an integrated framework to connect patients to medical experts and enable the electronic transmission of physiological parameters. An important step is the analysis of these data. The focus of this paper is to show how eSana provides mechanisms for the automatic analysis of data by utilizing a data warehouse. The data warehouse model and possible analyses will be presented.
