The widespread adoption of digital mobile devices has paved the way for the development of many innovative applications. Mobile devices provide a lot of services in commercial environment like Mobile ticketing, Mobile banking, Mobile location based services, Mobile auctions, Mobile purchasing and so on. One area in which a mobile device can provide tremendous benefit is in the area of health care. Till today nurses use the pager system only for informing the doctor about emergency condition of a patient. Even today they still rely on the paper based file system to maintain the patient's health records. With the usage of mobile devices, we can improve the health care system by incorporating such ICT technology as research is underway in improving the services in the Health industry, which is evident from the literature. With all these in mind, we here have developed a mobile health record system which would allow doctors and nurses to directly access a patient's health record from a mobile device form almost anywhere, giving them the ability to initiate treatment and also be more efficient in providing the best care to patients. Our proposed system also aims in entering and deleting the patient's record too, based on the need. The implementation has been carried out using JADE-LEAP agent development kit in Java enabled handset.
