Abstract

To address the issue of increasing health care costs and overcrowded care giving institutions, there is an increasing focus on the use of mobile technology and biological sensors in developing better Tele-health systems. Remote monitoring of cardiac activity is a central endeavour of Telemedicine. This article describes the implementation and evaluation of the performance of an electronic health ECG monitoring system utilizing mobile phones and Bluetooth-enabled ECG sensors.
