The “Heart Failure Alert System”has become one of the key emerging businesses in the World. In this paper, a mobile health management system is presented which is the first one integrating a chip in hand, chip is a pulse monitoring sensor with a smart phone. All physiological measurements are transmitted to the smart phone through Bluetooth. The user can monitor his/her own pulse and temperature from the smart phone. Then these data are transmitted to a remote server through the mobile communication of the smart phone, such as HSDPA, Wi-Fi, WiMax, GPRS, etc. The build-in GPS further provides the position information of the monitored person. The remote server not only collects physiological measurements but also tracks the position of the monitored person in real time. Finally this paper estimates classification, which age group of persons may caused by heart attack.
