Telemedicine has made considerable progress over the past few years. It offers the ability to monitor patient’s progress remotely as well as providing high quality healthcare to a larger geographic segment of patients. Investigation of Malaysian medical emergency and healthcare systems shows that it suffers from locality, Lack of real-time and mobility access in both emergency and medical information cases and Lack of searching capabilities that can provide information about hospitals, healthcare, emergency center, or doctors. This paper aims to design a new mobile web based on W3C web standards for integrated medical emergency model to overcome such problems. It allows patients to access their account from any mobile phone with capabilities of connecting to the Internet. A prototype for new model is implemented using open source. Samples of results such as searching for healthcare centers and doctors, finding the nearest hospital, its address and driving directions, requesting an ambulance and control updating or retrieving of patient’s details; are shown and testing of evaluation parameters done successfully.
