A 12-lead ECG telemedicine service based on the cloud computing. The heterogeneous 12-lead ECG files from urban hospitals, rural clinics, and ambulances can transmit and store 12-lead ECG files in the datacenter of Windows Azure with unified file structure via internet. The ECG interoperability among hospitals can be easily realized by sharing ECG records in the cloud. In addition, clinicians can use these 12-lead ECG records in the cloud for consultations or as e-learning materials of clinical ECG continuing education.
