As mentioned elsewhere, while I completely agree on the lifestyle / 
sports / wellness needs in the wider e-health context, at the moment I 
am not sure if special SOA services are needed or not, since these kinds 
of data can be committed to the EHR using the generic EHR service, just 
as for any other kind of data - it's just different archetypes. It may 
be that special services for e.g. performance tracking or whatever are 
needed, but for now I'm assuming all that stuff is done by applications, 
not services.
