Remote healthcare monitoring has attracted the interest of many research projects during last years. The need to address the issue of ageing population has lead to the exploitation of modern communication and software technologies in this domain too. This is instigated by related technological evolutions such as the evolutions in sensor networks which can now support self organization. This paper presents the INCASA architecture that provides advances towards mainly two directions. To start with, by using the appropriate middleware, it manages to transform the network of devices to a network of services following a Service Oriented Architecture. In this way, it turns the implementation of applications (e.g. clinical applications) on top of the middleware to be easy and efficient. Furthermore, INCASA architecture provides an integrated solution for profiling user habits. This is particularly important in case of elderly people who tend to follow daily activities in a repeating manner. In the proposed architecture, the procedure of modeling user habits is the necessary step in order to generate alert actions in case of divergence.
