At the third computing era, users interact with many computing devices surrounding or implanted in them, in a natural way, anytime and anywhere implementing the concept of ubiquitous computing. Moreover, the ubiquitous computing implementations provide the advantageous characteristics of awareness and personalization, which are precious in healthcare applications, i.e. the operating computing devices in the patient's environment can be aware about the evolving situations and actively participate in the provision of the medical treatment. In addition, the ubiquitously supported healthcare services can be provided anywhere and at any time allowing specific cases of the hospitalization model to be transferred to the home healthcare model. The adoption of the home healthcare model in a ubiquitous computing environment provides the prerequisites for the development of the Home UbiHealth model. Extending the formal provision of medical services at home provides the capability to cover the medical needs of all the population categories.
