Challenges in Wireless Bio-Sensor Based mHealth Development

Healthcare providers are facing growing challenges in patient diagnostics and information gathering due to inadequate infrastructure and insufficient number of health-care professionals to perform such operations. The traditional way of patient information gathering is largely based on text and dependent on self-report surveys and infrequent doctor consultations. The proposed bio-sensor based frame work can improve remote diagnostics and healthcare information gathering using mobile device based bio-sensor systems. Bio-sensor based systems can be used to gather relevant multimedia health information and improve the quality of remote diagnostic both for ambulatory and continuous monitoring of chronic diseases.
