A ubiquitous healthcare system (UHS) monitors patients with chronic disease and elderly persons all the time, wherever they are, detecting abnormal situations and issuing alarms when patients need immediate medical care. Prompt treatment may prevent a devastating illness. If there is no UHS, a family member or a member of the healthcare staff has to attend the patient all the time. Therefore, running a ubiquitous healthcare system is cost effective. This paper surveys such healthcare systems. Adoi:10.14257/ijbsbt.2016.8.5.19 fatcat:m6zlooraffabrj5pflhitqu3ca
