Remote monitoring is considered one key factor towards the improvement of elderly people’s quality of life and the reduction of healthcare costs. This paper discusses the prevailing network and software architectural principles in this sector and presents the way that they are applied into the inCASA platform. We emphasize on how services could be offered in a standard and re-usable way on top of the underlying physical layers. The aim is to apply Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) in a healthcare-based Internet of Things (IoT) environment. This approach supports a combined telecare and telehealth solution for monitoring of frail elderly people.
