A Multipurpose Patient Monitoring System embedded (MPMS) with mobile management profile and inter-building transmission is proposed and developed. This system enables the mobility of ZigBee devices and WiMAX long-distance transmission. Architecture, mobility framework and Adaptive Modulation/Coding (AMC) performance are discussed in details. It is evaluated that the new algorithm offers good efficiency and thus resulting in low management cost. The MPMS aids life saving by providing panic button and location tracking service. The system may be used in telemedicine applications.
