Ubiquitous healthcare systems offer a dynamic collection of services for patient monitoring from a mobile and diverse range of sources such as huge volume of sensor data. This is enabled by the rapid advancement of Internet technologies such as mobile IPv6 protocol which integrates real-time monitoring of people with health illnesses and improves situation and location awareness even if people are on the move. This research proposes a patient control management with the support of mobile IPv6 networks. In particular, this paper integrates ubiquitous healthcare and wireless networks for efficient and reliable access and transmission of information to healthcare centers. Heterogeneous devices such a mobile devices and wireless sensors can continuously monitor patient status and location which have the capabilities of communicating remotely with healthcare centers, dedicated servers, physicians, and even family members to effectively deliver healthcare services.
