In this chapter, an advanced telemedicine system has been presented for monitoring remotely located patients suffers from various types of diseases. Telemedicine is a multidisciplinary field, which needs expert physician and staff, which also include high cost and types of equipment to provide quality service to patients. As telemedicine systems are now capable of monitoring remote patients with greater efficiency using numbers of advance computational methods, and researchers showing great interest in this field. Telemedicine systems may support to deal with various types of biomedical signals like EEG (electroencephalography), ECG (electrocardiography), EMG (electromyography), etc. along with the integration of modern techniques. This chapter also deals with standards uses by telemedicine system along with its special features. A cloud-based workflow model for monitoring of remote patients has been proposed here. For the continuous monitoring and analysis of biomedical signals obtained from remote patients, telemedicine system may play a great role for technical, social, and cultural development of society. Here, a discussion has been made on various aspects of the monitoring system and different issues with latest development and improvement in this field.
