Using Push Notification in Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring Systems

Open access


This paper discusses mobile notifications in the context of health monitoring system that measure and store vital signs of the patient that are included in this program. The values measured are temperature and cardiac rhythm. This has two Android application, one is used by the patient to monitor his vital signs and the other is used by the physician to be able to see and receive push notifications of each individual patient. The sensors are connected to a Raspberry Pi and these devices send information to the Android smartphone via Bluetooth. The physician can monitor patient data in real time. All the information that is gathered by the smartphone from the sensors are sent to the cloud, can project a history and can detect some anomalies, for example, if the cardiac pulse is not within the limits of an accepted interval.
