The chapter represents a new model for healthcare system that is suitable for big data. The system contributes to enhanced living environments by providing a medical information searching to the users. To make the system suitable for personalized searching of information, a model for user profile is presented. In the chapter is also described a new reasoner that uses fuzzy logic and probability theory with respect to the big data.
