Abstract
Research on an Artificial Pancreas has gained its momentum and focused on the processing of clinical data for continuous insulin administration. However, the overall research is rather sketchy, fragmented and not very well coordinated. In this paper, we propose an architectural model for creating software intensive environments, which address deficiencies of current solutions for insulin infusion. A new way of defining which data should be collected and which types of computations should be performed with the data is important if we wish to come close to the functioning of a natural pancreas. An excerpt of the proposed software architecture has been deployed using Watson Analytics and performed upon a selection of data collected from sensors, individual patient’s input and persistent patient records.
