Abstract
The provision of health-care services and home assistance to the elderly and chronic
patients is a challenging application scenario for Web Services composition, which
support the integration of distributed, heterogeneous services in complex workflows.
However, in order to support the management of the typical routine activities carried
out when dealing with a patient, several contextual conditions, such as his health
conditions and the presence of specialized personnel at his home, must be taken
into account. Thus, context-awareness must be added to the developed services.
In this paper, we present the architecture of a framework integrating workflow
management and context-aware action execution to support the personalized man-
agement of medical guidelines in home health-care assistance services. The frame-
work is based on the integration of Web Service and Autonomous Agents techniques,
