We present a method for transmission and processing of real-time trans-continental medical data streams. We apply fundamentals of existing network technologies to create a secure tunnel from a remote hospital through an open-network to the Artemis Cloud. We capture and store incoming 1Hz data stream in our real-time event stream processor to allow for online real-time monitoring of the patient status. The contributions of this paper extend the Critical Care as a Service paradigm by incorporating remote monitoring centers. The results establish feasibility of the system to support real-time monitoring. However, existing protocols were required significant optimization to account for variability in throughput and availability of the network.
