Abstract

One of interesting issues in modern health care is possibility of automating rudimentary tasks involving monitoring patients’ state and providing them with an immediate help in emergency situations. This note discusses how application of BDIbased software agents can automate some tasks as well as improve service received by the patient. An implemented system skeleton which utilizes Jadex BDI agents is discussed.
