The "long-distance home health care service" has become one of the key emerging businesses in Taiwan. In this paper, a mobile health management system is presented which is the first one integrating a wearable ring-type pulse monitoring sensor with a smart phone. All physiological measurements are transmitted to the smart phone through Bluetooth. The user can monitor his/her own pulse and temperature from the smart phone. Then these data are transmitted to a remote server through the mobile communication of the smart phone, such as HSDPA, Wi-Fi, WiMax, GPRS, etc. The build-in GPS further provides the position information of the monitored person. The remote server not only collects physiological measurements but also tracks the position of the monitored person in real time.
