Abstract : Human resource is the backbone of developing and under developed nations. In developing nations like India, rural areas are more when compared to the cities. People in rural areas are not really concerned about their health, because of unavailability of hospitals in the nearby areas and also they need to travel long distance even for small injuries and routine checkups. Pregnant women from rural areas don't do their regular checkups at the early stage of pregnancy. Routine checkups can avoid birth of handicapped children and also helps in reducing fetal mortality rate to a very large extent. In our system, ultrasound scan of the pregnant women is performed and along with that, some vital parameters of pregnant women, like temperature, heartbeat rate, pressure, ECG are measured and are stored in a memory card. The mobile application can access this information and can check for emergency condition. Thus if any critical condition exists, it prompts the health care worker to send SMS to the Doctor with patient's details. A windows desktop application, access the information stored in memory card and displays result analysis report, video of ultrasounds scan with multiple videos on single screen and allows the doctor to generate report of the latest checkups and stores this information both in memory card and local server for later purpose.
