Information & Diagnostic Environment

Abstract. The 21st
century promises to usher in an era of Internet based healthcare
services--Tele-Healthcare. Such services augur well with the on-going paradigm
shift in healthcare delivery patterns, i.e. patient centred services as opposed to
provider centred services and wellness maintenance as opposed to illness
management. This paper presents a Tele-Healthcare info-structure TIDE--an
`intelligent' wellness-oriented healthcare delivery environment. TIDE incorporates
two WWW-based healthcare systems: (1) AIMS (Automated Health Monitoring
System) for wellness maintenance and (2) IDEAS (Illness Diagnostic & Advisory
System) for illness management. Our proposal comes from an attempt to rethink the
sources of possible leverage in improving healthcare; vis--vis the provision of a
continuum of personalised home-based healthcare services that emphasise the role
of the individual in self health maintenance.
