Favela, Jesus, Tentori, Monica, Castro, Luis A., Gonzalez, Victor M., Morn, Elisa B. and Martnez-Garca, Ana I. (2006): Estimating Hospital Work Activities in Context-Aware Healthcare Applications. In: Pervasive Health 2006 Nov 29-Dec1, 2006, Innsbruck, Austria. pp. 1-10. Available online

Hospitals are convenient settings for the deployment of context-aware applications. The Information needs of hospital workers are highly dependent on contextual variables, such as location, role and activity. While some of these parameters can be easily determined, others, such as activity are much more complex to estimate. This paper describes an approach to estimate the activity being performed by hospital workers. The approach is based on information gathered from a work study conducted in a hospital, in which 196 hours of detailed observation of hospital workers was recorded. This data is used to train a back propagation neural network to estimate user activity based on contextual variables such as location, artifacts being used, the presence of colleagues and the subjects' activity. The results indicate that the user activity can be estimated with 75% of accuracy (on average) which could be sufficient for some applications. We discuss how these results can be used in the design of activity-aware hospital information systems.
