Abstract

with the advancement of human life, there is big increase in chronic diseases especially in heart diseases. This increase is due to environmental pollution, lack of exercise, eating habits and closed environments. We propose a proactive health monitoring system for cardiac patients. This system consists of electronic bands wear by the patients to collect the real-time health status and an e-health system to process the collected data. The e-health system is a complete big data framework that will be develop to solve major healthcare problems. This system will provide a proactive measure to all the patients suffering from heart diseases like Ischemic heart disease or Hypertensive heart disease. The system will monitor the patient health continuously from electronic band and generates alerts to patients and doctor accordingly. This system will also provide a guidance to patients in case of abnormal health readings. The framework of e-health will follow the best practices of software engineering, healthcare and big data. This system will help patients to take proactive measure against any abnormal behavior in their health and also help doctors to monitor the patient health continuously. This development will enhance the quality of life of patients as well as increase the performance of doctors and healthcare providers.
