Abstract

Home healthcare services are emerging as a new frontier in healthcare practices. Data reliability, however, is crucial for the acceptance of these new services. This work presents a semi-automated system to evaluate the quality of medical measurements taken by patients. The system relies on data qualifiers to evaluate various quality aspects of measurements. The overall quality of measurements is determined on the basis of these qualifiers enhanced with a troubleshooting mechanism. Namely, the troubleshooting mechanism guides healthcare professionals in the investigation of the root causes of low quality values.
