The use of pervasive technologies to enable continuous patient monitoring and assessment in various setting outside of hospitals, lowering healthcare costs and allowing early detection of problems is discussed. A modified security system technology is a less obstructive alternative for home monitoring. Recent advances in wireless systems provide the basis for a realistic development and deployment of systems to support behavioral monitoring in multiperson homes. Statistical pattern-recognition and machine-learning algorithm integrate noisy and unreliable sensor data with the situation's context and dynamics. A hidden Markov Model can enhance the state estimation provided by modeling only the RSSI probabilities.
