The heart Diseases cause millions of death worldwide because of the increase in the aging population and the rising of healthcare costs. There is also a demand of quality healthcare from remote locations. Technological advancements in the field of medical electronics and communication can help decreasing the cost of healthcare. In this paper a real-time heart disease monitoring system is introduced. Thesystem extracts the ECG signal from the patient, sends it through the Internet and stores it into a hospital server. The system also processes the ECG using MATLAB to alerts the doctor and hospital staff by sending email and SMS message if any abnormality is detected. The system also implements an application based on Android platform to provide online information about the patient status such as the patient's heart beat rate, ECG, patient history and provides new reading every 30 minutes.The system enables doctors to remotely follow-up the status of their patient using their computer and smart phones. The system was tested and checked by medical team for validation.
