The next generation of "wireless e-health technologies" is a new and evolving topic in the areas of telemedical and telecare systems. These technologies involve the exploitation of mobile telecommunication and multimedia technologies to provide better access to healthcare personnel on the move, by removing the key disadvantage of trailing wires in current systems. These technologies provide equal access to medical information and expert care by overcoming the boundaries of separation that exist today between different users of such medical information. A great benefit to all users will be a more efficient use of resources and far greater location independence. In this paper we will address some notes and future trends in these emerging areas and their applications for m-health systems. We will also discuss current as well as future strategies for implementing these system within important healthcare sectors as well as critical medical environments.
