The current trend in healthcare provision is going towards personalized and remote services, which are provided outside of hospitals or other care units, thus benefitting an eHealth approach. The place to collect health data is more often person’s/patient’s home. This procedural change sets new requirements for the personal medical devices as well as their connectivity solutions. Dealing with personal health data means that security, privacy, and trust need to be in the highest level; to protect personal sensitive data but also to provide reliable data for healthcare professionals’ use. Not only dependable connectivity but also compatible data presentation and format are needed to open markets to various vendors, which enables way towards cheaper devices and better security of device supply. European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is working towards a connectivity standard for smart body area networks (BAN), which could fasten this progress.
