Operational workflow. The physician accesses the system through the internet and assigns a questionnaire to one or more patients by specifying the examination elapse as well as the delivery recurrence. The web server, through the use of a scheduler and interfacing the MMSC and SMSC modules, forwards a message to patients, inviting them to compile the questionnaire. Once compiled, the patient forwards their answers to the server which then stores the data using another module. A physician can then monitor the patient's health by connecting to the internet and viewing a graphical representation of the patient's answers.
