Systemic Thinking in Multi-agent Systems Coordination – Applied in Diabetic Health Care
2006 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
Computer agent is considered as a technology that may support human beings with automatic functionalities in the social environment. This paper describes an approach to applying agents to diabetic health care. A good health care agent is considered to be able to keep a good balance between individual flexibility and team control. A systemic approach is proposed hereby as a complementation to the current approaches. Multi-agent Systems (MAS) coordination is considered on three levels: collaboration, coordination and communication. In the end, an agent-based computer system – Integrated Mobile Information Systems (IMIS) – is discussed based on the systemic approach.
