Mobile devices are being considered as service platforms for mobile health information delivery, access and communication. However they face challenges with regard to delivering secure multimedia based health services due to limitations in computation and power supply. Since mobile devices have limited computational capacity and run on small batteries; they are unable to run heavy multimedia & security algorithms. In this paper a framework to relieve mobile devices from executing heavier multimedia and security algorithms in delivering mobile health services is described. The proposed framework uses a Cloud Computing protocol management model which intends to provide multimedia sensor signal processing, secure storage as a service to mobile devices.
