Nowadays, increasing interest in the health care enables active research about the standard for transmitting/receiving data of health devices. Body Area Networks play a vital role of supporting various e-Health applications. Standardization and testing / certification are continuing through the IEEE 11073 PHD, Health Level Seven and the Continua Health Alliance. In this paper, we introduce an e-Health Application using the IEEE 11073 PHD standards for exchanging remote health information as

In addition, we conduct experiments about exchanging health information between a health device and a smart device, which are conforming to the IEEE 11073 PHD and Bluetooth HDP. While using the Bluetooth HDP, our experiments show communication between two devices i.e. health and smart device. During transmitting/receiving operations, the IEEE 11073 PHD standard protocol is used. It is expected to implement a variety of remote medical services through health devices supporting these standards in future.
