Nowadays we are facing with data flood in many areas. Big data come from numerous sources such as human activities, measuring instruments and many appliances connected to computers or smart phones. One of the most challenging topics in the next decade will be how combination of genome and exposome data will contribute to reveal the risks for particular diseases. According to the medical scientists, the exposome includes all exposure environmental factors, from chemical and nonchemical agents to socio-behavioral and psychological factors as stress, diet, endogenous and exogenous factors from whole lifespan. The growing of mobile and ubiquitous computing technologies contributes in increasing the number of records regarding personal health and habits of patients. Internet of Things (IoT) includes the development of wearable measurement sensors connected with Bluetooth, which are capable to capture and store health-related data, intended to be stored in patient health records. The exposome is a healthcare and medicine concept that implies an interdisciplinary and integrated approach of many sciences domains including epidemiology, computing, environment sciences, toxicology and social science. We aim to integrate the data collected from various sensors and detectors in the patient health record to provide clinicians with more elements for better disease prognosis, diagnosis and treatment.
