    Abstract

    Evolution from wired to wireless communication systems has brought great advantages to healthcare services. Mobility support function for e-Health applications gives practitioners, medical centres, and hospitals new tools for managing patients’ care, electronic records, and medical billing to ultimately enable patients to have a higher control of their own well being. E-Health and health care services are information based, hence better utilisation of information has the potential to make services more integrated, can enhance patient safety and accountability. These will have a positive impact and will increase patient’s acceptance of the services. In order to make e-Health applications more integrated and acceptable for the users it is needed to improve their efficiency. All the above motivated us to research within area of wireless standards and their interconnectivity in order to provide efficient, reliable, and robust service and eliminate connectivity boundaries for e-Health applications. In this chapter, the focus is on the development and investigation of novel technologies which would allow efficient and reliable healthcare by utilising the latest wireless technologies.
