In the current situation, we come across various problems in health sector which can be solved with different ideas. Existing patient monitoring system, even in multispecialty hospitals are following traditional methods of maintaining records of patients in the form of hardcopies i.e., files, records, reports etc., which has lot of disadvantages and also this is not eco-friendly. In hospitals they also do various scanning, blood tests, X-rays and so on. But they provide reports of these in the form of hardcopies. What if the case, where they could upload data to a specific account, such that the doctor can easily checkout that and effectively provide medications to the patient? Currently available heart rate monitor watches or gloves are only used in gyms for fitness observations. Which is not actually connected to cloud for providing any graphs/reports, though it is not needed in that case. As health is the main point of concern, past and present record is much needed to diagnose correctly for present health condition. And in case the patient cannot describe the problem in detail, those records will do the job. In this research work attempts are made for implementation of patient monitoring system which consists of sensors connected to microcontroller, intended to acquire vitals from patient body. The accumulated data is synced to the Firebase database account of a particular patient. The uploaded data is utilized for generating reports in daily or weekly basis so that the report is very helpful for the doctor to diagnose fairly and quickly.
