Message integrity is found to prove the transfer information of patient in health care monitoring system on the human body in order to collect and communicate the human personal data. Wireless body area network (WBAN) applications are the fast growing technology trend but security and privacy are still largely ignored, since they are hard to achieve given the limited computation and energy resources available at sensor node level. In this paper, we propose simple hash based message

We test the proposed algorithm in MATLAB on path loss model around the human body in two scenarios and compare the result before and after enhancement and show how sensors are connected with each other to prove the message integrity in monitoring health environment.
