Abstract: Although telemedicine has emerged as an everyday necessity for health monitoring, still current solutions are built for a small number of patients or use sensors that do not stream data with high velocity and volume. In this article, we explore a novel architecture for distributing health monitoring computations over distributed cloud regions, both for constantly online patients and offline for several hours daily. We propose a conceptual architecture for a use-case example capable of processing thousands of simultaneous incoming streams with electrocardiogram signals. Current serverless cloud providers limit the concurrency within a single region, and we evaluate the performance of this solution across multiple cloud regions. The results indicate that our new solution can overcome the limitations of a single cloud for online and offline patients, thereby saving their lives in case of detected dangerous arrhythmia.
