This paper discusses eServices using frontier applications, which targets medical domain applications using sensor network, along with New standardized health check system introduced to Japanese nations recently. We clarify the ubiquitous aspects of this application, and address challenges for ubiquitous innovation. We also describe the experience of introducing and operating the system with a real field trial.
