Recently, many studies reported various advanced e-Health service systems in patient care monitoring utilizing sensor networks and questionnaire systems. We propose an informant driven e-Health service system for the identification of heart rate related mental stress factors with a simple operation of informant-client model. Through performance analysis, we show that the proposed system is a cost-effective stress identification system applicable to mobile wireless networks.
