With the increasing success of Wireless Sensor Network(WSN) and RFID technologies using this theory continues to set a milestone, but as far as the Medical Areas are concerned these technologies are still lacking in such domains. This is the domain where the part of Body Area Network comes into play. WSN is one of the effective technology which can be used in the advancement of medical fields and applications. This technology can be used vastly in the future advancements of e-health and thus helping remote areas in an effective manner and can even track patient's condition from a far distance. This leads to an independent living of a hearing or vision impaired person without even caretakers. With an advantage comes a disadvantage, similarly is the case with the mentioned technology of Body Area Network. Due to this emerging technology, the demand for hospitals , doctors and clinics are getting reduced. Also there is a danger for leaking the Patient Information leading to manipulation of any personal information. Thus, keeping all the constraints in mind we have designed this paper to make the Body Area Network effective ,compiling the technologies and bringing it all over to remote controlled sensors as well as securing the data transmission and thus securing the patient's information to a good extend. Keywords— Wireless Sensor Networks, RFID, E-Health, Secure Transmission Channel.
