Current advances in sensing devices and wireless technologies are providing a high opportunity for improving care quality and reducing the medical costs. This chapter presents the architecture of a mobile healthcare system and provides an overview of mobile health applications. Furthermore, it proposes a framework for patient monitoring that performs real-time stream analysis of data collected by means of non-invasive body sensors. It evaluates a patient’s health conditions by analyzing different physiological signals to identify anomalies and activate alarms in risk situations.
