Nowadays some mHealth paradigms are being subject to changes with the emergence and advances in Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) using low power data exchange systems like Bluetooth for sensors. This paper shows a different approach of MCC applied to mHealth by introducing a new architecture developed to an application for mobile devices, treating ECG signals using Cloud Data storage and a specially developed frame architecture between the sensor and the mobile device to detect and correct as many errors as possible. The proposed approach not only shows the convergence of MCC, but also focuses on the mHealth scenario to show some benefits of its use in the modern world. A secure link algorithm was also developed between mobile devices and the ECG sensor transmitter.
