s the costs of healthcare services rise and healthcare professionals are becoming scarce and hard to find, it is imminent that healthcare organizations consider adopting health information technology (HIT) systems. HIT allows health organizations to streamline many of their processes and provide services in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. The latest technological trends such as Cloud Computing (CC) provide a strong infrastructure and offer a true enabler for HIT services over the Internet. Cloud computing is ondemand computing that does not reside at the users' premise. Instead, the computing resources are owned and managed by a service provider and the users access the resources via the internet. Conventional healthcare systems based on patient records are being considered as electronic format empowering patients to access their records via internet. Remote patient monitoring is becoming more feasible as specialized using Virtual Private Network (VPN). A mobile VPN is described in service provider networks co-operate to dynamically extend a virtual routing area of a local service provider network to the edge of all visited service provider network and thereby enables IP address continuity for a roaming wireless device. This paper presents the implementation of electronic healthcare

monitoring system which provides data storage, processing and accessing information through mobile cloud using the Virtual Private Network which improves the privacy and security of the data. An android open-source cloud computing technologies as the mechanism to build an affordable secure and scalable platform that supports billing as well as Electronic Health Record operations. The developed system has been proposed to present system's client, which operates on a mobile device and acquires data from the Electronic Health Record and E- billing system connecting to a cloud server within the Virtual Private Network offered by the Hospital or clinic.
