Providing patient-centric health care services is the goal of health-care institutions. However, due to human-related aspects, this goal is frequently undermined. PINATA offers an automated patient-centric system based upon Pervasive Ambience Intelligence techniques and enriched with Semantic Web technologies. The system makes use of RFID sensors to track the movements of patients and medical staff in order to direct staff effectively. An automated camera system monitors the patients and alerts hospital staff in case of emergencies. Through handheld devices hospital staff is automatically provided with relevant patient information gathered from various sources. PINATA is based on a Service Oriented Architecture and makes use of domain specific ontologies.
