The timely delivery of relevant, accurate data is essential within a ubiquitous medical environment. At patient point-of-care, relevant sensor real-time vital sign readings may be required for diagnosis. These vital sign data sets may be supplied through a wireless sensor network (WSN) comprised of wireless patient sensor nodes. The Data Management System User Profile (DMS-UP) is designed to effectively support data distribution techniques within a WSN. A practitioner’s DMS-UP determines the type and form of real-time patient readings to be uploaded onto their mobile device at the point-of-care. Details are given on the DMS-UP prototype and how it is integrated into the existing DMS (Data Management System) architecture. The current implementation includes sensors that take readings of the electrocardiogram, blood pressure and pulse rate. 1
