Abstract Abstract — The technological developments in the fields of multimedia clinical applications and communication networks require a specific analysis to increase the efficiency of network based healthcare services. In this work, we computed the optimum transmission parameter (data packet size) for applications needed to guarantee the perceived quality of service in the proposed ubiquitous healthcare network. This has been carried out through NS2 based simulation of a state wide area network infrastructure implemented in Himachal Pradesh, a state with diverse geographical terrain situated in the Western Himalayan region of India. The various types of healthcare applications and services have been classified into different classes according to their perceived QOS requirements as per the guidelines in ITU report on network performance objectives. The infrastructure specific optimum values of data packet size for these QoS classes have been computed. Network based healthcare applications and services running on both TCP and UDP type of traffic have been presented in this paper.
