Use Cases

Sanjay - generally healthy, but monitors his health to avoid the high blood pressure of his mother and high cholesterol of his father

He takes his weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol measurement daily, and the data is sent from his health set top box to a monitoring service at his doctor’s office. Each month, Sanjay gets an automated health summary generated by a service at his doctor’s office as well as some information to help him maintain a healthy lifestyle. In addition, Sanjay’s health information is stored in an external health storage database so that Sanjay and his doctor can access his health information over the web.

Carlos - uses a mobile wrist device to record his altitude, speed and heart rate as he is running.
