Ubiquitous means the environment that users can receive the medical treatment regardless of the location and time. As the quality of the life has been improved, we are more focusing on our health and people want to be treated with the arising trend of the ubiquitous. Along with the circumstance, the interest of the remote-treatment has been increasing. So, systems are developing that can check their health status and treat them in a distance in a real time. Now, we are asking more services that can detect patients location and utilize this information. We studied the "health care system" that can be operated by detecting the location of the patient in an urgent situation with the previous remote-treatment system that applying "location based services". This system is the service which can help to detect the location of people or things through the portable-equipment based on wireless communication network. With this system we can process and manage data at the hospital or emergency room in a distance by transferring bio-data such as ECG data and pulse data as well as the user's location information.
