This thesis concentrates on user context and proposes a new federated approach to improve patient – caregiver interaction, thus enabling the patient to be an active participant in his or her health and wellbeing. This thesis has focused on creating a new framework and software using different proven technologies, patterns and models, resulting in an amalgamation of best practices engineered to provide a new approach to how user context in eHealth is processed. This work will explore healthcare needs for ubiquitous/context aware computing, as well as present a model that will lead to the creation of an agent-oriented piece of software, using Protégé and OWL, that will provide for the context specific needs of a wide range of healthcare stakeholders.
