An Improved Mode of Streaming Multidimensional Image Data for Mobile Healthcare Systems
Healthcare system is moving from an organization-centered to a process-based care. Process-based healthcare system provides distributed healthcare services based on emerging communication technologies and advanced software architecture, so called Mobile Health Care System. Mobile Health services can be achieved at a lower cost than direct human interactions-based healthcare, in particularly in remote areas. Mobile Health Cloud is a promising new Web technology that allows for an unprecedented level of collaboration between patients, caregivers and physicians. It is an emerging trend of health-centric blogs, wikis, social networks, tags, tag clouds and podcasts that promise to bring about a whole revolution in the way that health care is delivered. This level of collaboration in the world of medicine ensures a higher quality of health care for the world, as well as serving as a catalyst to speed up research that has the potential to cure diseases that incapacitate or take the lives of millions around the world. Mobile Health Care System, on the other hand, can closely link the various medical departments and coordinate among medical institutions in the business. With achieving a strong information technology resources and optimizing patient flow, proposed system improves power consumption and throughput of individual nodes in the use of medical resources. The server is able to concurrently manage multiple clients computing a video stream for each one; resolution and quality of each stream is tailored according to screen resolution and bandwidth of the client. The paper explores in depth issues related to latency time, bit rate and quality of the generated stream, screen resolutions, as well as frames per second displayed.
