The availability of Zigbee-based sensor network technology with low-power consuming sensors has made their implementation possible in healthcare, particularly in remote patient monitoring. Two alternative approaches for the deployment of Zigbee-based Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) for remote patient monitoring on general wards are discussed and their performances evaluated in a simulation environment. In the first approach, a single WPAN was considered for gathering and transmitting physiological data from the patients on a ward. In the second approach, which is proposed in this paper, multiple WPANs are considered instead. In this approach, a WPAN will be allocated to each patient on the ward. The simulation results show that the multiple WPANs approach out-performed the single one in respect of efficiency and reliability for data transmission for the entire ward
