A general overview of the emerging wireless and networking technologies and their use to promote the ultimate goal of global health by means of deployment of a telemedicine paradigm is discussed. To achieve this the authors conduct a state-of-the-art study of recent wireless and medical sensor technologies in conjunction with investigation of continuously growing pressures for a better healthcare service throughout the world triggered by the growing age population, social transformations. The study reveals that in spite of available superior technological solutions the services are mostly too expensive, mostly inadequate to respond to the growing demand. Then it proposes a flagship solution of making the best use of the next generation of 'wireless computing' for building a new harmonised healthcare infrastructure for which the authors need to encourage researchers in the development of an innovative media-independent ubiquitous wireless telemedicine system for more cost effective superior quality healthcare services.
