As the population aging is a global and unalterable trend, and the whole society is lacking of productive workforce to provide healthcare services, there is a pressure to develop smart services to support the elderly persons live a more independent life and improve the quality of open healthcare. This paper combines together the concepts of smart living environment and process management, we discuss a novel method called automatic process measurement that uses wireless technologies to collect process data for process mining and process analysis. Besides, this paper presents the real-time data acquisition system that is capable of measuring elderly people’s behavior and nurse’s behavior. We apply the system to three Linux-based platforms and evaluate it in laboratory and practical environment. The proposed system fulfills the measurement needs of collecting process data for automatic process modeling.
