    Abstract

    The use of ICT technologies to facilitate self-management for patients with chronic diseases attracts increasing attention in smart healthcare. Existing research has mainly focused on sensing and data processing technologies with little work on decision support mechanisms and systems. In this paper, we propose a home-based decision support system based on a wide range of assessment metrics from medical assessment, social and psychological evaluation to behaviour analysis to help self-manage rehabilitation and wellbeing in a personalized manner for different patients. This paper develops semantic models for describing patients, their conditions, medical and behavioural assessments and inference mechanisms for decision recommendations. The research is undertaken in the context of mobile user self-management for Spondyloarthritis (SpA) patients. A case scenario is used to demonstrate the application of the proposed approach, technologies and principles.
