Mobile health (mHealth), as an important development direction of eHealth, is an innovative application of spatial information technology used in health field. In this paper, the key technology of location based mobile health system is studied and the system prototype is designed and implemented. The mobile monitoring terminal receives data collected by the physiological parameters measuring instrument, obtains location information through GPS/WiFi positioning module, and uploads data to the service center using GPRS communication. The service center, a Silver light based WebGIS system, monitors the location and physiological parameters of mobile monitoring terminal users, makes alarms and reminders through spatial analysis. The mobile health system with real-time monitoring, precise positioning, rapid analysis, visualization display, can be widely used in family sickbeds, geracomiums, empty-nest elders' care, chronic disease patients and other special populations or scenes.
