“Managing health-related personal information based on context awareness”
AuthorKamble, Priya Suresh
The aim of this thesis was to implement prototype which, provides relevant information to the user at right time. The personal information that is targeted here was health-related information. This may include various type of information, such as drug information, education information, health monitor data for instance glucoses meter, step counter, personal notes, health related images ,PDF files. To implement prototype, we use metadata of the information. Some of the metadata of the information describes the context of the information. We used time, date and location context of information to implement our goal successfully. By using these contexts of the information, the relevant information to user is provided. The four components were implemented to implement prototype: Metadata extractor, Information manger, controller and user interface. The metadata extractor allows user to download files and automatically store file in to the download folder and context of these files was extracted and stored in to the database. The second component was information manger; the main function of this component was to reads the context of downloaded files and make association of similar files by using context. The third component was controller, it was use to represent related files to the end users and the user interface allows user to interact with our system. The implemented prototype was tested for providing related information to the users. The information access was based on the context of the information, which eases to get results and to recognize useful information for the users. It was also tested whether the prototype stores updated files or not. The prototype makes association of new downloaded files to the database and it also avoids redundancy of files. Thus, it helps users to access the updated information and to reduce redundancy of data. The prototype provides user with the right set of information to the right time, by identifying the need of the users by matching with available information.
