Electronic health (e-health) is commonly recognized as a promising model for raising the enormous pressure on conventional healthcare systems. In this paper, an improved delay-sensitive medical packet transmission scheduling system has been proposed to manage the medical packet transmission in e-health networks. It focuses on communication through the wireless body area network (over WBAN). Medical packets arrive at the gateway (generally with one patient). Their applications are reported with different time-sensitivities to the service provider (i.e., the base station), illustrates the value of their medical signal. Then the priority queue is designed for the order of transmission. The base station analyzes the service key parameters by developing the packet utility and the base station’s profit functions. It creates an evaluation-compatible method so that all gateways are required to disclose their medical packet’s actual delay sensitivities. Experimental analysis has shown that the proposed method will maximize the base station’s profits, thus providing a higher priority medical packet service.
