Abstract: Healthcare providers are facing growing challenges in patient diagnostics and information gathering due to in-adequate infrastructure and insufficient number of health-care professionals to perform such operations. The traditional way of patient information gathering is largely based on text and dependent on self-report surveys and infrequent doctor consultations. The proposed bio-sensor based frame work can improve remote diagnostics and healthcare information gathering using mobile device based bio-sensor systems. Bio-sensor based systems can be used to gather relevant multimedia health information and improve the quality of remote diagnostic both for ambulatory and continuous monitoring of chronic diseases. The paper addresses bio-sensor signal processing and secure communication of sensor signals based on next generation mobile technology and bio sensors, with the aim to facilitate the development of secure and innovative mobile health services.
