Abstract

When running eHealth research in Living Labs, a number of regulatory, ethical and methodological limitations apply. This paper is a case study about an eHealth project running in Homokháti Living Lab (HLab). The goal of the Alpha project is to create a telemonitoring system, to monitor subjects with no or with stable neurological disease. The project runs in three living laboratories where tests are performed in a coordinated way. Managing the information flow between the living lab users and other stakeholders proved to be an important task that is far from straightforward when medical aspects play a role. The medical or the industrial stakeholders may often need contextual information that cannot be provided by sensors but by human supervisors. This paper addresses what kind of legal and medical regulations and protocols influence the work of the LL, how these problems surfaced in our project and what kind of solutions we use to tackle them. The experiences are evaluated according to their usefulness in the next phases of the LL.
