Abstract: The high costs and inconvenience of visiting a doctor for medical advice have deterred a sizable number of elderly and needy from seeking proper medical treatment promptly and this may cause their conditions to deteriorate and possibly resulting in a more severe impact on their daily lives. Thus, this application is designed with the aim to bring more convenience and health care services to these less privileged segments of the community. In this paper a secure multi-access cross-platform telemedicine application, known as MEETING ROOM, has been designed and developed to provide easily accessible health care services. The MEETING ROOM application adopts a web-based approach in general to provide the flexibility to run on cross-platform devices. Computing devices with network connectivity can be placed in clinics, day care centers, community centers or right at their homes so that they can easily access the application with those devices. It is a hybrid application, comprising of a web portal and a video conferencing application. The web portal is used to manage the system and the users in a secure manner while the video conferencing application provides a convenient communication platform for the patients to consult a doctor on their conditions and for the doctors to hold online meetings. A web-based version and mobile Android version of the video conferencing application are developed to provide the flexibility. © 2013 IEEE.
