Mobile users require location based, situation aware services, especially when healthcare is involved. Within "Nomadic Media" an Eureka-ITEA International projects, Ontology based semantic web service discovery and orchestration have been studied and applied to provide mobile users with innovative healthcare services. The designed system identifies, orchestrates and customises the services, according to the health status of the user and his usage location, usage conditions and environmental situations. The paper will describe the developed technologies and the implemented services. Similar approach was followed in PIPS; "Personalised Information Platform for Life & Health Services". However in PIPS more emphasis has been applied in the definition and the development of Use Cases and service definition and development for Patients and Citizen.
