Abstract

The accessibility to important healthcare resources and the costs of healthcare services are serious challenges facing the rural communities of most developing countries. In order to address these problems, we are pursuing rigorous experimental investigations for the development of an information utility infrastructure, which takes advantages of emerging Utility Grid Computing (UGC) and Body Area Network (BAN) for ubiquitous e-Healthcare service provisioning. In this paper, we derive the system requirements from enterprise models and delineate the general framework guiding the development of the infrastructure.
