Abstract: Health monitoring is one of the emerging areas for computing technologies. Health monitoring via mobile is using the application of mobile computing technologies for amending communication between doctors and patients. As mobile devices have efficaciously become part of our life it can incorporate health care more seamlessly to our everyday life. There have been many recent advances in sensor technologies which enable us to integrate low- power, low-cost devices with emerging intelligent health monitoring systems. In this paper we present an overview of wireless sensor networks for health monitoring in hospitals with the use of mobile communication.
