Abstract

The next generation of "m-health technologies" is a new and evolving topic in the areas of telemedical and telecare systems. These technologies involve the exploitation of mobile telecommunication and multimedia technologies to provide better access to healthcare personnel on the move, by removing the key disadvantage of trailing wires in current systems. These technologies provide equal access to medical information and expert care by overcoming the boundaries of separation that exist today between different users of such medical information. A great benefit to all users will be a more efficient use of resources and far greater location independence. In this paper we will address some notes and future trends in these emerging areas and their applications for m-health systems. Especially we will discuss the role of 4G and emerging mobile systems for future m-health systems. The new technologies can make the remote medical monitoring, consulting, and health care more flexible and convenient. But, there are challenges for successful wireless telemedicine, which are addressed in this paper.
