Abstract: Rapid advancements in communication technology have spread to medicine also. Particularly, smartphone technology has made medical provisioning through mobile systems a reality. Innovations in mobile software application are potential benefits to the public health since the mobile platforms became more user-friendly, computationally powerful and are affordable. The innovative mobile apps can contribute in clinical consultation complementing face-to-face interaction in the health care at lower risk to the public. We have developed and evaluated mobile app for smartphone on Android platform to facilitate interaction between the patient and doctor where the patient seeks advice, diagnosis and treatment from the doctor from remote places. The Graphic User Interface (GUI) display screens of the smartphones are incorpotated the medical data needed by the clinician to interpret and respond to information.
