In this paper, we propose a mobile cloud-based health promotion system targeting clinical cardiovascular diseases for use with both the Windows and Android operating systems. The prototype system can provide health promotion recommendations by physicians via so-called mobile cloud-based health promotion. These recommendations are based on users’ own the systolic and diastolic blood pressure (BP), pulse, sleep time, electrocardiogram (ECG), climate, diet, and movement records, utilizing remote video conferences, and asynchronous messaging with users. More specifically, the system integrates cloud-based BP and ECG healthcare module, a remote video technique, a video recording module, a message module, and a cloud-based climate, diet, and movement module. Furthermore, it includes a cloud-based cardiovascular disease electronic bookshelf module to provide healthcare education, as well as a cloud-based health promotion module, which utilizes physicians’ preventive health recommendations. We demonstrate the use of this system for cloud-based health promotion and healthcare procedures for cardiovascular diseases. The system integrated BP and ECG machines, which obtain data on systolic and diastolic BP, pulse, sleep time, and ECG signals, utilize a universal serial bus connection to send these vital signs to a computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone, from which they are transferred to a health promotion center using Wi-Fi, or third and fourth generations mobile communication technologies. This mobile health promotion system can be used in the self-management of various chronic and cardiovascular diseases, anywhere and anytime. The aims of this system are to improve costs, time, efficiency, health management and monitoring, and quality of care.
