According to a 2013 survey conducted by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, 43% of American physicians use mobile health technology for clinical purposes. That number is bound to increase dramatically thanks to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently approving new services to be covered in 2015, including mental health services.
Still, due to the limited number of mobile health services covered by American health insurance companies, the majority and most popular mobile health applications are designed to provide preventative care. That’s not a bad place to start given 75% of all healthcare dollars are spent on patients with one or more chronic conditions, many of which can be prevented, including diabetes, obesity, heart disease, lung disease, high blood pressure, and cancer.. But some of the latest American advancements in the mobile healthcare industry are designed to save money by saving time.

Mobinius has been working to create cutting-edge mobile health (mHealth) solutions on a variety of mobile platforms including smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
MobileHealth is a Mobile solution that communicate to Medical devices through Bluetooth and fetch the data and update in Mobile/tablet device, then push the data to central medical data repository on Cloud. And consumer to find doctors and take appointment.
Need to change few things in the below image (like find doctors, appointment etc).
The app, which communicates with device and captures the data from Bluetooth, based medical devices. The application has got Single Application interface for multiple medical devices. All the available parameters are in tabs of app, in each parameter the list of medical devices, User will select the required device to pair.
Once the measure is taken, User can opt for saving it on Cloud or discarding the data. If “Save” is opted then data get locally stored and queued up for uploading process. If “Discard” is opted then data is not stored locally and not get uploaded.
Pedometer feature is developed within the App. This will be useful if the patient uses the Application in their Phone, so that using inbuilt gyroscope of the phone to calculate every step they take.

Many devices use Bluetooth Low Energy technology, which extends the personal area network (PAN) to include Bluetooth enabled devices that are powered by small, coin-cell batteries. With low energy technology, sports and health care equipment, human interface (HIDs) and entertainment devices are enhanced. The technology can be built into products such as watches, wireless keyboards, gaming and sports sensors, which can then connect and communicate with host devices, such as mobile phones and personal computers.
Bluetooth Device integration
The integrations module has been developed where, User pairs the medical device with their mobile/tablet. Once the devices is paired then list of parameters to be displayed for the user to select the parameters they are going to measure.
- Creating Medical Parameters, for each parameter threshold limits to be set that is Standard, Warning, Critical limits upper and lower to be set.
