In the healthcare domain, a major challenge is how to provide better healthcare services to an increasing number of people using limited financial and human resources. Now a days MobiHealth can be defined as the application of emerging mobile communications and network technologies for health care systems. It involves the use of mobile computing, medical sensors, and communications technologies for health care. The needs to provide medical services in remote areas have motivated researchers to develop the telemedicine system using mobile technology. Wireless technology enhances patient self-management and quality of life. Disease management facilitated through information and communication technology (ICT) implies more effective and efficient care of patients with chronic illnesses. Successful implementation of MobiHealth makes the right information available at the right place, at the right time, and in the correct form at low cost. As wireless technology increases in flexibility, popularity, and distribution, it will play a key role in the new health care delivery model.
