When patients are in a health care environment, it is often isolated from their social environment; a situation which greatly complicates the medical follow-up, either complicated patient privacy. In this paper, we present a solution, through an application, which allows the patients monitoring, integrating the use of mobile phones in their activities. Through this device the patient keep updated all your medical information, from the reading of their vital signs, diet control, administration of medications, physical analyses, recommendations and others monitoring modules.
