Abstract : Consistent cost effective health monitoring has become the need of the hour especially for the unstable, chronically and critically ill. Here we present a novel architecture and algorithmic methodology combining the sensing subsystem and the analytics engines. Physiological parameters from multiple sensors feed into a severity quantizer and a subsequent multiplexer, the output of which is processed by successive physician assist filters to rapidly discover and alert any health criticalities. The architecture is optimized for communication and energy performance, and the algorithms result in lucid presentations to physicians. The whole system is the result of close collaboration between engineering and medical teams at our multidisciplinary University, building on a multi-terabyte, more than a million patient Hospital Information System (HIS) database, and is being readied for deployment on a large telemedicine network of more than 60 nodes in the Indian subcontinent and parts of Africa.
