We propose a three-layered architecture for clinical evidencebased Decision Support Systems. Our architecture allows for off-the-shelf low-cost sensors to be deployed in tele-health environments; counterbalancing low confidence in the sensor data by fusing data from multiple sensors. The relevant data fusion and interpretation layer also forms the interface between sensor data and explicit rules encoding medical knowledge. This achieves a complete separation of the non-medical and medical knowledge, an important step for system adoption.
