This white paper describes work-in-progress at the Center for Pervasive Computing (CfPC) at University of Aarhus. We describe our pervasive healthcare project, which is a collaboration between hospitals in the county of Aarhus, a Danish software company developing an electronic patient record solution, and CfPC. The aim of the paper is to present and discuss a vision of a middleware architecture for pervasive computing within clinical work settings. Our research is grounded in careful observations of clinical work within a hospital and we start by outlining recurring scenarios in the daily life of healthcare staff and sketch how pervasive middelware technologies may provide a strong foundation for pervasive and mobile solutions in this setting.
