m-health is one of the fastest growing vertical market within the Mobile service domain Some Interesting ‘ Google’ Statistics: Google Search - March 2011 ‘m-health’ > 102,000,000 Hits In the US, Verizon launched in November 2009 a health focused business unit, ‘Verizon Connected Health’. In the UK, Vodafone and in France Orange outlined plans in December 2009 for the mobile health business. Opportunities in the global mobile healthcare market are estimated to be worth between $50bn and $60bn in 2010 Source: McKinsey & Company-2010 500M people will be using healthcare mobile applications in 2015 Source: research2guidance.comstepanian 2012

Common m-health business applications Mobile Diabetes Management Systems Ref: Istepanian etal, JTT, 15,3 2009
Mobile Diabetes Systems as a healthcare business PositiveID announced that the FDA had cleared itsCellnovo from CE mobile health diabetes management system, iGlucose. Mhealth News, Nov. 2011 Interest in mobile health (mHealth) applications for self-management of diabetes is growing. In July 2009, we found 60 diabetes applications on iTunes for iPhone; by February 2011 the number had increased by more than 400% to 260. Ref: J. Med. Internet. Res. 14, 2012
Benefits of m-health for Diabetes management•Self-management (empowerment) is key tominimising the long-term complications of diabetes.•Lifestyle and behaviour.•Personal responsibility for his/her care.• Giving the patient the necessary medicalinformation he/she requires• Provision of patient engagement with his/her carer• ‘Implicit enforcement’ of compliance by providing thenurse/doctor with the information needed to knowif the patient is taking SMBG or not.
PSNR Vs ThroughputA sample of the average throughput of the ultrasound data stream captured by the expert using theWiMAX and HSUPA platform is shown. Experimental results show that both WiMAX and HSUPAsupport uplink medical video streaming with average 0.6 Mbps.
RTT results of different ultrasoundvideo stream packet sizes over WiMAX and HSUPA Fig. 1 and 2 show the comparative results of the RTT values for different packet sizes over HSUPA and different WiMAX modulation and coding schemes. The results show that the WiMAX provides better RTT performance compared to HSUPA network.
