Currently, health care in Lower- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) is suffering from shortage of trained physicians in rural areas. The development of certain technologies, particularly in sensors has yielded the birth of mHealth. The main objective of this paper is to develop a telepresence application for a mobile platform. The functionality of the system will include the ability for the doctor to connect with a doctor/patient from a remote location using mobile or web application, and the ability to diagnose patient disease remotely and recommend follow-up care. There is a requirement for low price, well suited, and easy-to-use video communication system. The web real-time communication (WebRTC) permits browsers to set up a peer connection to deliver information and media with real-time conferencing capabilities through simple JavaScript APIs.
