Abstract

This paper proposes an architecture for the storage and retrieval of multimedia information for mobile healthcare. Our coverage of storage mechanisms for multimedia information is centered on images, audio, video and textual contents, while the coverage of retrieval techniques is centered on audio requests, Internet connection, SMS and keypad queries. The paper highlights key issues and factors for technical consideration in the design of storage structure and retrieval mechanisms of mobile health information. The paper ends with the IHISM-SRA (Integrated Healthcare Information System through Mobile Telephony Storage and Retrieval Architecture): a proposed structure for the storage and retrieval of health information in the context of a less developed country, using mobile telephony.
