The Personal Health Services Framework (PHSF) is a general framework of online services for healthcare providers and individual patients to connect through the internet using their mobile devices and computers, for establishing and configuring healthcare related applications. Using the services, through their mobile devices or computers, individual patients can communicate and coordinate with their healthcare providers to report their daily self-health monitoring data from their personal health monitoring devices and receive healthcare related instructions and advices and healthcare providers can view and analyze reported personal health monitoring data from individual patients and effectively diagnose patients’ health information and provide patients further instructions and advices on one-to-one basis. The framework also provides location-aware and context-aware services, for individual patients to seek nearby healthcare providers during travelling to different places in order to receiving timely healthcare services. The context-aware services can intelligently monitoring and analyze individual patients’ health situations and trigger corresponding actions such as timely informing patients’ healthcare providers, nearby hospitals or medical emergency services. The services provided by PHSF are fully pluggable and configurable. Customized specific healthcare applications involving individual patients and their healthcare providers can be created. Multiple customized healthcare applications with multiple patients and healthcare providers can operate simultaneously using the services. The framework is implemented by four layers of services and multiple databases on the internet.
