Abstract: In this paper we propose to apply fuzzy logic based dynamic buffer tuning to make pervasive medical consultation more successful. In pervasive consultation the physician can answer patient requests anytime, anywhere. The physician carries a SFF (small form factor) mobile device such as a mobile phone, which provides the interface to interact with the rest of the distributed Pervasive Digital HealthCare System (PDHS) on the mobile Internet. The PDHS in this paper caters to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is therefore called TCMPDHS or simply T-PDHS. Through this interface the following are enabled: a) creation and remote storage of a new electronic medical record for the patient; b) retrieval of a patient’s old records; c) remote consultation with expert physicians for a more conclusive diagnosis; d) acquisition of useful computer-aided diagnostic analysis and other supporting information such as laboratory tests and X-rays; and e) remote dispensing capability. The usability of a pervasive consultation system, however, relies on various factors such as: a) correct information transfer, and b) fast system response. This paper focuses on the second factor and explores how fuzzy logic can be exploited to develop a more efficacious dynamic buffer tuning technique that enhances the speed of the T-PDHS system’s service response.
