Abstract

This article demonstrates a generic approach to a mobile monitoring system for automatic early detection of a progressive course of several diseases. The monitoring by the system can help ambulant patients to avoid some complications. Used as the mobile component, a specially programmed smart phone initiates self-tests peculiar to some disease: the tasks downloaded from a central server request to perform the tests and retrieve their results. The mobile component uploads the test results back onto the server. Based on the results, the system automatically selects the patients with a progressive course of their diseases and alerts responsible physicians.
