A risk function for identifying the instantaneous risk of each physiological parameter has been defined. The performance of the proposed system has been evaluated on public physiological data and promising experimental results are presented. By understanding the challenges and the current solutions of informatics appliances described in this chapter, new research areas can be further investigated to improve mobile healthcare services and design innovative medical applications.
