This paper presents a representative use case of mHealth. The use case, called patient monitoring, is described from a Mobile Network Operator (MNO) point of view and should be seen as complimentary to other use cases that already exist from other parts of the industry. Then three communication scenarios are abstracted form the use case in order to clarify MNO's concerns and new requirements. The MNO's assets that mHealth take advantages from are evaluated next. And new requirements and trends of mHealth are presented before the conclusion of this paper.
