e-Health Monitoring Applications: What about Data Quality?


Data quality analysis remains a difficult issue on several domains (e.g. geographic, software, databases, etc.). This is particularly the case on e-Health monitoring applications for chronic patients, where the need of data quality to ensure correct decision making is very important. Patients monitoring refers to a continuous observation of patient’s condition (physiological and physical) traditionally performed by one or several body sensors. In fact, significant actions and decisions are based on data coming from such sensors (e.g. remote diagnosis, consultations, hospitalization…). Providing high data quality helps to guarantee a correct processing and interpretation of information, as well as the appropriate intervention of medical services. In this paper, we explore the principles and issues of data quality in this particular domain providing primary research clues and motivation about this subject. We underline the necessity of the analysis of data quality on e-Health applications, especially concerning remote monitoring and assistance of patients with chronic diseases.
