Abstract(s)With the increasing expansion of health information sys- tems, there is a need to create an interface: human, machine and the surrounding environment. This interface is based on Ambient Intelli- gence, which has been increasing in the healthcare area. In this paper it is presented the ambient Intelligent system implemented in the Intensive Care Unit of Centro Hospitalar do Porto, one of the major Portuguese hospital, in the north of Portugal. This system was called INTCare, which main goal is for monitoring the patients’ vital signs. INTCare has been extended with the PaLMS system, responsible for the patient localisa- tion and identification, and interoperates with AIDA, the interoperability platform, also developed by researchers of the University of Minho, which collects information from hospital information systems. Furthermore, an usability evaluation was performed, described in this article, to find out the strengths and weaknesses of the system.
