Abstract: This paper presents a novel approach towards the development of a portable, user-friendly and affordable mHealth System using Android based mobile devices. The Android application captures personal, biometric and medical data of a patient and combines them to generate an XML based medical record which is then uploaded to a server. The medical data are gathered from different sensors interfaced to an Arduino UNO board. The data are then converted into packets, which are transmitted on request to the mobile phone using Bluetooth. The XML report makes the mDROID system robust for query and inter-operability at the server end and also for merging with standardized XML based medical repositories. The mDROID system is designed for use by minimally trained health workers in the field.
