Abstract: The digital transformation process of the healthcare sector has improved the citizens’ access to care and the efficiency and sustainability of the healthcare sector. The sensitive nature of healthcare data requires additional protection against the risks of unauthorized access. Data privacy is an essential concern. This paper presents the patient empowerment and underlines the importance of data empowerment in healthcare domain. In order to address the deployment of a suitable and efficient architecture for a remote healthcare monitoring system, several aspects of the monolithic architecture and Service-Oriented Architecture versus microservices architecture are discussed. A case study related to the RO-SmartAgeing software system used for an improved health data management is presented.

Keywords: Microservices, Remote healthcare monitoring system, Data empowerment, Scalability.
