The patients in rural areas lose their lives due to the unavailability of proper healthcare at the right time. This research work aims to develop a system suitable for continuous and real-time monitoring of rural patients to enhance healthcare facilities. The proposed system integrates existing and freely available mobile technology with wearable wireless sensors for patient monitoring. This research work has designed and developed a mobile software platform for continuous and real-time monitoring of rural patients. The prototype platform has been enhanced by integrating power optimizing and risk based data collection and transmitting methodologies. The system also provides an emergency warning message to the doctor's mobile phone. This proposed system collects the patient's health related sensor details in mobile phone, performs a first level analysis of the collected data, and transmits it to a central server for further processing. The system also enables the doctor to receive and view patient's ECG reports to a mobile phone. This paper introduces a dynamic algorithm to increase the battery life of a health monitoring mobile phone.
