The project aims to develop and validate an efficient and advanced ICT based integrated health information system that not only provides a mean for monitoring health parameters outside of the traditional hospital environment but also is able to create a permanent link between patients and healthcare personnel thus providing a direct improvement of the concept of equal access, equal quality and efficiency of health monitoring for the societal and economical development of enlarged Europe. The strategic goal is the improvement of public health and quality of life, adapting to changing needs and utilizing existing and new technological capabilities, while at the same time increasing the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of these services.

The main target of the project is to study, design and implement a novel, user friendly, flexible, highly efficient, interactive mobile application for health monitoring.The project contributes to E2020 strategy regarding “smart growth”, “sustainable growth” and “inclusive growth” objective by promoting “access for all” to health care using telemedicine and telecare infrastructure and other technology-oriented health care provision methods and will try to improve access to primary and emergency health care (at isolated and deprived communities) in the cross border area by providing a personal mobile healthcare system on the base of the mobile video supporting device allowing ambulant patients: 
(1) Remote monitoring of the patient's state; 
(2) Patient's continuous self control; 
(3) Live contact from any place -any time with professional medical staff through modern communication network. 
The system with micro-electrodes integrated directly into cellular device/PDA is intended for healthy population interested in health status self-control and can be adopted also for chronically ill population.
