Abstract :

Telemonitoring is a medical practice that involves remotely monitoring patients who are not at the same location as the health care provider. Purpose of the study to use tele-ECG and using blue tooth enabled mobile technology developed by BARC. m-Health technology involves use of mobile phone for providing health care services to population residing in remote rural areas where doctor to patient ratio is low. Tele- ECG is a Blue tooth enabled device which can record and transmit data to a mobile phone. The ECG is a non-invasive test that is used to reflect underlying heart conditions by measuring the electrical activity of the heart. By positioning leads (electrical sensing devices) on the body in standardized locations, information about many heart conditions can be recorded. We have done ECG on 400 normal individuals at remote locations and transmitted it to doctors. The recording was made by health workers trained to perform these procedures. Informed consent was taken from all the participants before enrollment. We found good correlation between the traditional machine and hand held machine for ECG recording. Mobile application development based on the application framework was demonstrated successfully. The platform applies a document-based approach providing a versatile and reliable way of sharing and collaboratively complementing of health information including standard information model documents and integration with health information systems and personal storages. The implemented mobile tele-ECG case demonstrates the overall function of the platform. The platform can be used as a basis for developing new applications for specific purposes.
