The potential of patient-centred care and a connected eHealth ecosystem can be developed through socially responsible innovative architectures. The purpose of this paper is to define key innovation needs. This is achieved through conceptual development of an architecture for common information spaces with emergent end-user applications by supporting intelligent processing of measurements, data and services at the Internet of Things (IoT) integration level. The
scope is conceptual definition, and results include descriptions of social, legal and ethical requirements, an architecture, services and connectivity infrastructures for consumer-oriented healthcare systems linking co-existing healthcare systems and consumer devices. We conclude with recommendations based on an analysis of research challenges related to how to process the data securely and anonymously and how to interconnect participants and services with different standards and interaction protocols, and devices with heterogeneous hardware and software configurations.
