Abstract
Ehomecare services can save money and improve patient care due to increased feelings of well-being at home. However, since not all patients are technical experts and ehomecare services are developed by different vendors, using different languages and data definitions, acceptance of ehomecare might become difficult due to the complexity of managing all the different service locations and login information or due to unavailability of requested services. Therefore in this paper the authors present a patient centered application as a facade to the broker platform providing dynamic service selection. The client application is adjusted dynamically to fit the patient's profile, fulfilling the specific needs for each patient personally and presents only the ehomecare services that are of interest to the patient. In order to alleviate users from service localization, the broker platform provides transparent service selection and switching and guarantees that service requests are handled by dynamically selecting the best or least loaded service, this way also providing reliability.
