Abstract: In health-care, it is very important to have simultaneous access to different data on the patient, such as his/her case history, medical history or undergone surgeries. The data is usually stored in the hospital information system. This paper describes design of a system called BlueMedica, which provides the mobile access to data stored in the hospital information system. It is connected to an existing hospital information system by the means of a translation server. A mobile device called TabletPC enables visualization and modification of the data by the user. A part of the system is the a device for patients -- a wristlet designed for measuring body conditions. The acquired data can be transferred wirelessly into the information system. The Bluetooth technology provides the mobility of the data connection. As information on patients includes very sensitive personal data, we discuss information security issues as well.
