Summary. The aim of the study is to develop a remote patient health monitoring system.

The research methodology includes three main parts: the first part is detecting the fact that the patient has fallen; the second part is taking electrocardiogram — ECG (heartbeat detection); the third part is transmitting the data for its remote viewing by a medical professional.

Results of the study and their analysis. The main objective of the study was achieved. All three individual modules — patient fall detection module, heartbeat detection module and remote viewing module — gave the planned results. It is concluded that all the modules of the system can be further optimized and brought to a final unified scheme.

Keywords: heartbeat detection module, remote patient health monitoring system, remote viewing module, patient fall detection module
