Evolution of internet has linked the entire world and revolutionized the way people communicate and exchange information. A current trend in telecommunication is the convergence of wireless communication and computer network technologies such as Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) devices. Since WAP also be common feature found in future mobile communication devices, it is worthwhile to investigate its use in telemedicine. In 1999, heart disease has been accounted for 30% of all deaths worldwide[8]. They are many patients who died because they failed to detect and diagnosis of pathological symptoms earlier. For these reasons,Web-Based Telemedicine for Patient Monitoring has been develop as a monitoring system to monitor the status of patient’s health. The parameters involved are electrocardiogram (ECG) and blood pressure (BP). Authorized users can browse the patient’s general data, monitored blood pressure and electrocardiogram on WAP devices. This application written in Wireless Markup Language (WML), WMLscript, and Php Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) resided in a content server. A MySQL relational database has been set up to store the BP reading, ECG data, patient’s record, clinic, hospital information and appointment. This system consists of Apache server to support the system implementation. Application was loaded directly from server to computer via internet. Data has been successfully retrieved from the database and displayed on the WAP phone. This system shows how WAP can be feasible in patient monitoring and patient data retrieval.
