Abstract

Personal health monitoring devices are an important tool for improving quality of life and reducing health case costs, however the collected data is often confined to the device or an attached personal computer. This article describes a Web service based system for uploading the collected personal health data to servers and securely sharing it with other members of the health care community where it can be used for many beneficial purposes.
