Body Sensor networks are having wide range of applications in medical field; integration of biosensors with the wireless communication system has the potential to take the healthcare to the next level. With the implementation of the biosensor network system in health monitoring, it reduces the expense and the human body can be examined and abnormal medical conditions can be detected earlier. In this paper a new and effective Body sensor network monitoring method with real time positioning and tracking has been proposed. The intelligent agents used in this system provide continuous interaction between the patient, doctor and the hospital services. The main advantage of the proposed method is the positioning and tracking of the patient without the help of a mobile service provider. Mobile agent providing tracking and positioning is also employed for sending an ambulance to the patient in case of an emergency.
