Due to demographic change and the declining number of physicians, many rural areas are threatened by a lack of medical care. To counter this problem, it is necessary to relieve the existing physicians. This paper describes a technical infrastructure for patients to record their vital data themselves and make it available to their physician. To do this, physicians first prescribe vital parameter recordings for their patients in a web frontend, i.e. what vital data should be measured, when, and how often. The patient can view this data on a smartphone, which also serves as a gateway for data transfer. Commercially available devices with Bluetooth connectivity are provided for measuring the vital data. This data is sent automatically from the devices to the smartphone and transferred to a cloud environment. The general practitioner can then display and evaluate the accessed data via the web frontend.
