— As the context-aware technologies and RFID-based sensor devices continue to emerge, the existing healthcare systems are the lack of a uniformly access to cope with the heterogeneous effects, including various context-aware healthcare information presentation, client device constraints, and context-aware healthcare middleware. To allow interoperability among the various context-aware healthcare systems, a common standard is needed to uniformly access context-aware healthcare information provided via a fundamental infrastructure. The Sensor Web 2.0 technologies provide a catalytic solution to this problem. This study addresses these issues developing a RFID-based Context-aware Healthcare System (RCHS) which is based on wireless communication architecture and is implemented in the Web 2.0 environment. The RCHS is composed of RFID-based Healthcare Sensor, RFID-based Context-aware Healthcare Middleware, and Mobile Client to allow a continuous and context-aware health monitoring for patients.
