In the period of ten years, significant attention has been discussion of the Health care system. Even though there have been few related surveys about this subject. According to the general characteristics of varying distributed systems in Health care, this survey mainly categorizes and reviews on network technology in healthcare system will respect to the following aspects: 3G mobile WiFi, 2G, Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX). This paper aims that giving an overview of this area, evaluating the current status of the wireless networks can help in the healthcare field and medical field and envisioning possible in the future trends in this field.
