An automatic critical health care service system is proposed here to enable a person who becomes critically ill to request for and receive help with the click of a button on the Mobile Phone. When the patient clicks this button, the following occur simultaneously: the doctor at hospital the patient normally consults (Home Hospital/Doctor) is informed, the hospital nearest to the patient's current location (Nearest Hospital) is informed of his/her location and patient's critical health information is sent to the Nearest Hospital. The Nearest Hospital could dispatch an ambulance with appropriate skills and armed with critical health information of the patient. Three solutions for this automatic critical health care service system are proposed that integrate a combination of Electronic Patient Record technology, Mobile and Satellite technologies, RFID technology, GPS and other location technologies, Geographical Information System technology, and Java SIM Card technology. One of the solutions - with a Service Provider System - has been tested by designing and implementing a prototype system.
