In this contribution a novel model-based solution approach is introduced for medical networks and biotelemetric applications. Medical networks are communication networks that serve for the purpose of monitoring and protecting human health. These networks are designed to use biotelemetric ways to transmit the vital data to health observers such as doctors, nurses, first-aid teams, hospitals, and health agencies. These networks are also used in collective damages that may occur in situations such as flood, earthquake, war and terror and for treatments and follow-up of patients and to organize health teams more effective and efficiently. Implementations using this model presented here provides a reference design. In addition MCP (Medical Communication Protocol) and MMP (Medical Management Protocol) are designed to reveal how communications between modules designed. In this way, communication rules explained clearly on developed solution based on the model. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
