Abstract

Health issues in developing countries are becoming more serious day by day. This has made it difficult for physician to accurately study the trend of different diseases in many cases, thus failing to analyze the way patients behave after being diagnosed. At the same time there is an increase use of mobile information technology gadgets, which can be used as a way to minimize on the gap between health centers and patients. Monitoring and evaluation also becomes a problem as most of the health centers in the country lack personnel that can analyze the collected data to effectively give reports. This paper proposed the use of mobile messaging technologies through a health management system to enhance health monitoring and patient data analysis.The project entitled Patient Monitoring through Short Message Service will be developed in web base and SMS application concept.
