Mobile communication for health care workers are a critical part of today’s hospital infrastructure. Unfortunately, many of these systems do not work together, leading to personnel having to carry several different devices during their shift, which often cause unnecessary interruptions for the staff. Newer context-sensitive systems aim to reduce these kinds of interruptions by being aware of the users’ surroundings and context. CallMeSmart (CMS) is a context-sensitive system, which aims to help medical personnel by controlling their availability according to their situation. This is done by evaluating contextual data in real time; data about the user’s work schedule, role, surroundings, etc. In this paper, we discuss the development and testing of a system that can adjust the users’ availability by continuously tracking their location and adapting to it.
