Cloud-Based e-Healthcare Service System Design for On-Demand Affordable Remote Patient Care

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS, volume 5)


In this paper, a low-cost system design for e-healthcare service including software and hardware components is presented. Vital signs of the human body are measured from the patient location and shared with a registered medical professional for consultation. Temperature and heart rate are the major signals obtained from a patient for the initial build of the system. Data is sent to a cloud server where processing and analysis is provided for the medical professional to analyze. Secure transmission and dissemination of data through the cloud server is provided and an authentication system, a secure storage server for the cloud is included for control by the patient from a smart phone. A prototype of the system is built with all the components for testing and the challenges of implementing the system in real time have been discussed.
