— A new algorithm has been developed using wavelet based block processing for indexing and retrieval of digital images. In E-health monitoring system which provides a comprehensive solution for personal health care through remote monitoring of vital signs and management of medical data for diagnosis and treatment patient images can be captured and stored in the database. This paper aims at patient’s data retrieval through the patient image enrollment and identification process. Enrolled patient’s images are processed and stored as feature parameters. In identification process, the distance vector between each region is computed using feature parameter and the corresponding patient’s record is retrieved. This approach decreases the patient data retrieval time and improves robustness.
