	%X In this paper, we propose a multi-agent intelligent
system that is used for monitoring the health conditions of elderly
people. Monitoring the health condition of elderly people is a
complex problem that involves different medical units and requires
continuous monitoring. Such expert system is highly needed in rural
areas because of inadequate number of available specialized
physicians or nurses. Such monitoring must have autonomous
interactions between these medical units in order to be effective. A
multi-agent system is formed by a community of agents that
exchange information and proactively help one another to achieve the
goal of elderly monitoring. The agents in the developed system are
equipped with intelligent decision maker that arms them with the
rule-based reasoning capability that can assist the physicians in
making decisions regarding the medical condition of elderly people.
