Abstract

Due to the shortage and unbalance of medical resources, it is difficult for patients in the countryside to get high-quality and timely medical services from the central medical facility. Existing researches of fog e-health has the potential of providing real-time medical services for the countryside with body sensor networks (BSN), but there are two limitations. On one hand, because of the medical services requiring not only low-latency but also high-quality, constructing an AI e-health service on resource-constrained fog with edge AI is necessary but unsolved. On the other hand, because of the regional differences in disease risk, there is a lack of an effective mechanism to provide a customized fog AI e-health service for patients in different regions. To address these issues, a smart customized e-health (SCEH) framework is proposed in this paper to provide edge-intelligent and customized medical services for the countryside. Firstly, semantics-based lightweight and meticulous load management mechanism is designed to reduce data load and involve medical semantic. Secondly, model-ensemble based fog AI collaborative analysis mechanism is proposed for load balance and knowledge integration. Thirdly, an attention-weight based customized fog AI e-health generation mechanism is devised for regional medical model reconstruction. The simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of SCEH which ensures both the accuracy and low latency of fog e-health with limited resource.
