Telemedicine systems are used for providing medical services to the patients living in the remote areas. This paper aims at broadly classifying the telemedicine systems based on their suitable place for operation. Also, a system to monitor the vital parameters and ECG signal in remote locations is proposed in this paper. This system will be able to acquire and transmit these signals using Internet to the cloud for further diagnosis in the hospital.
