This article is part of a special issue on Intelligent Agents in Healthcare. Hospitals are natural candidates for pervasive computing technology, but they have significant privacy requirements. Autonomous agents can help developers design privacy-aware systems for pervasive healthcare environments. An extension of the SALSA agent framework incorporates customizable privacy mechanisms to adapt applications to a certain quality-of-privacy level, thereby harnessing the properties of autonomous agents. An implementation of a context-aware pervasive hospital application shows how this framework can help developers manage user privacy.
