OBJECTIVE: The current personal health devices are used as stand.alone machines or transmit the personal health information only to local PCs. The objective of this research is to build a system which can transmit personal health information from personal health devices to the healthcare server systems.

METHODS: In this research, we used infrared (IrDA) and Bluetooth for wireless communication from the personal health devices to a PDA. And, we utilized SMS (Simple Message Service) and world wide web systems to deliver the data from the PDA to other mobile phones or to the board in the web server.

RESULTS: We developed the system that wirelessly communicates personal health information from the personal health devices to a PDA. The system also delivers both glucose and blood pressure data from the PDA to other mobile phones by SMS (Simple Message Service) or automatically register to the board in the web server.

CONCLUSION: We showed convenient and easy way of collecting personal health information. Our system will contribute improving personal healthcare environment and personal health device business.
