Smart health care devices are slowly gaining popularity because of their many advantages over conventional health care system. In the conventional approach, a patient approaches a doctor either in the clinic or hospital. Much of time is spent in patients travel and wait period before he gets approval to meet the doctor. This is much worse for a patient who lives far away and has to spend lots of time in travelling. In general, when a patient first meets the doctor for treatment, he needs to register and then get diagnosed followed by some prescription. After that the patient routinely meets the doctor again leading to travel and wait periods. This will build up lots of stress in the patient especially if he has become weak and if the patient is quite old. The doctor maintains a record of diagnosis and prescription for each patient and this record gets updated on every visit by patient. It may also happen that the doctor may not be available for consultation on certain days due to some emergency or other reasons. This paper suggests a method of handling these issues faced by patient by developing a device and a web portal. The device consists of microcontroller connected to some bio-medical sensors like Temperature, Pulse-Oximeter, ECG, etc. This device can be used to read the patient’s health data on a regular basis and then send it to the Web Server via Wi-Fi module.A Web Portal is also being developed for viewing patient’s data regularly.
