— A mobile healthcare system is a network includes a collection of number of components that includes patients and their health-care providers. In this system it is important that the patient to remain connected at all times even if one of the communication components fails. In this paper we discuss the design of the MediNet system and shows how it faultlessly handles connectivity issues between patients and their mobile phones, between the healthcare meters and mobile phones, and between mobile phones and web server components. The overall goal behind our design strategies is to continue providing a high level of service to the patient in the face of communication problems leading to improved acceptability and trust of the system by patients.
