Abstract : Although health care support in Indian hospitals are getting upgraded over the recent past, the doctor -patient ratio as reported by medical council of India, in the year 2017, is less than one doctor for every 1000 population (0.62:1000). This number is much less than World Health Organization (WHO) (1:1000) requirement. These necessitate utilization of cutting edge technologies to provide solution to the above issue. In India, healthcare systems are facing number of challenges especially poor quality, unreliable service and lack of timely medical attention to the patient. This paper describes a cost effective, portable working model for health monitoring system. The system is capable of measuring the patient's vital signs and transmitting through wireless communication. This can alert doctors, relatives or ambulance through a Global System for Mobile (GSM) module and share the patient's current location obtained through a Global Positioning System (GPS) module. The vital signs being measured include temperature, Electrocardiogram (ECG) and heart rate in Beats per Minute (BPM). This portable device can eliminate continuous personal monitoring of a patient. The system has been tested using Proteus software before implementation of the hardware.
