World Wide Web (Web) technology has become increasingly popular and successful, because it uses standard communication protocols and Hyper Text Markup Language(HTML), and is supported on multiple platforms. Innovations such as server push, secure socket layer and Java make it possible to use the Web as the basis for creating monitoring systems of dynamic processes. This paper presents a project, whose goal is to develop a Web based Intelligent on-line Monitoring system for Intensive Care Units (IMI). IMI has been tested and evaluated in an intensive care unit since October 1995, and the results are promising. After presenting the motivations of using Web technology, we present the system structure and the functionality of IMI as well as the testing and evaluation results. Security issues are also addressed.
