Abstract

Social media and the Web2.0 technologies are ubiquitous and due to the advances in mobile communication protocols, operating systems, and internet standards they are now supported even in cell phones and tablets. We are not yet at the point where a cell phone can be used as a medical device but such small and omnipresent instruments can be used in a way that promotes research in the clinical and biomedical domain. In this paper we describe a collaborative platform for designing composite simulations for the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) community needs. We investigate the use of pervasive mobile technologies so that scientists and researchers can easily design, share, and execute simulations. The proposed platform supports real time notification and sharing of the results, and share the results and related artifacts with their work group and colleagues.
