Abstract

A new mobile platform is described that can be used in a number of telemedicine and wellness applications to provide connectivity between healthcare professionals, patients and measurement devices. The platform is based on an open application framework that provides interfaces for measurement, user interface, database and network connectivity implementations. A new technical approach has been adopted in using a mobile database solution for local storage and caching of information at the mobile terminal. Further, the platform applies a document-based service architecture that provides a versatile and reliable way of sharing and collaboratively complementing of health information including standard information model documents (HL7/CDA), and integration with health information systems and personal storages. The implemented mobile tele-ECG case demonstrates the overall function of the platform.
