In mobile usage scenarios, patient care involving point of care considerations build upon increasingly complex information and information structures. Furthermore, communication of information must be enabled regardless of space and time. Decision support and guidelines are expected to communicate with other subsystems, such as those provided by information sources and hardware devices. As also these subsystems may build upon intelligence and involve their own usage scenarios, this implies further complications also the knowledge representation and software engineering tasks. In these developments, public health problems provide case studies with potentially rather huge impacts. Examples are provided e.g. by guidelines involving pharmacological treatment. Knowledge and reasoning need to interact with information management, and often involves utility of various devices. Well organized databases for pharmacological information are necessary for successful engineering of mobile extensions in these case studies. The public is now also one of the driving forces in these developments. As electronic prescriptions and generic substitutes are appreciated by the public, we experience how knowledge in its various forms provide success stories in this field.
