The growing influence of technology, the internet, computers, networking and mobility, along with the advances in medical devices, are becoming an integral part in the future of healthcare. These technology driven devices are making their way to becoming essential tools for medical practitioners, where record keeping of medical monitoring and information of patients could be made convenient, more efficient and richer in content, not only including pictures but also audio and video records as well. This project proposes the utilization of a mobile telemedicine framework that uses the world wide web, the internet, laptop or pc computers, and major recording and interaction software; where communication is between the host(patient) and the client( doctors/ hospital) . With this is mind, medical practitioners can take advantage of its technological capacity and geographically extend their practice to be of a service to more patients by bringing this system to remote areas. This project is able to monitor the heartbeats, record the body temperature and the weight of the patients. Also, enables interactive teleconferencing between the Host PC (Patient) and the Client PC (Doctor/Hospital). This project adopts several sensitive and accurate sensors, reliable software such as Visual Basic, Cool Edit Pro, ICU2, JavaScript; that enable picture capturing, batch-mode file transfer on patients’ medical data, heartbeats and temperature measurement recording, audio and visual interaction, and uploading data into the world-wide web (specifically to the Telemedicine website). This project is compatible with the existing ones found in the current market. The major advantage is that this project requires low implementation cost. With real life implementation, this project may benefit and further enhance the recently launched 1Malaysia Mobile Clinic by the government. Undeniably, Telemedicine is able to make an extremely significant contribution to medical care in the 21st century.
