Mobile devices are becoming ubiquitous in every day's life; their time and place independence are reasons for using them in different areas. One such area is electronic health, where patients can install small applications on their mobile devices that help or guide them in the management of their disease. The eSana framework offers a set of tools and approaches that allow the transmission of discrete physiological values electronically in order to evaluate them by medical experts.
This paper presents an application scenario in the field of dermatology. It illustrates the information flow between patient and dermatologist including all transformation services. One speciality is the combination of binary image data and structured information about a given condition sent over a mobile network. The main goal is to show a set of necessary components in order to support the relationship between patients and their dermatologists by using medical standards.
