Abstract

Telehealth has been widely used in recent years to provide healthcare services at a distance. It supports eliminating space barriers and improves access to healthcare services. One important feature of telehealth is that it can be used to save lives in critical and emergency situations by means of alarming service. As health monitoring and alarming services rely quite heavily on body-worn devices/sensors for health-related patient data gathering, communications reliability between those devices and back-end monitoring and alarming server is of high importance to be taken into consideration during the design phase of such services. A slight miscalculation may cost precious human lives. This paper aims to provide design recommendations for a reliable patient monitoring and alarming service that gathers patient data mainly through body-worn sensors.
