Secured and Integrity Based Health Care Scenarios using Advanced Internet of Things

Published 2021-06-30


Before the Internet of Things, patients only had the opportunity to communicate with their doctors during an office appointment, and were reduced to text and telephone contact. Monitoring patients' welfare constantly and giving them advice correctly was impossible. Due to the wide use of Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled technologies in the healthcare industry, remote surveillance is now feasible, giving healthcare providers the capability to keep patients safe and stable while still motivating doctors to perform outstanding treatment. Better and smoother doctor experiences have also led to greater patient interest and happiness. In addition, remote surveillance of a patient's condition will help to shorten a hospital stay, and this is important because it can reduce readmissions. But simultaneously contributing to substantial cost savings and improved treatment quality, the Internet of Things (IoT) would have a profound effect on reducing healthcare costs. Healthcare companies are being changed by the Internet of Things (IoT). With this new age, computers and humans will now be intertwined with healthcare. As a result of the Internet of Things, healthcare has technologies that improve the health and lives of individuals, families, doctors, clinics, and insurance providers. The patients can benefit from IoT. Patients now have access to customised attention from devices that take the form of wearables like exercise bands and other wirelessly activated devices like blood pressure and heart rate tracking cuffs, glucometer etc. These instruments may be modified to display a variety of data, including calories, daily fitness check, medical appointments, blood pressure fluctuations, and more. Thanks to the Internet of Things, the lives of the aged and disabled have been greatly improved by giving them the ability to constantly monitor their health problems. People who live alone with their relatives have a major effect on this. Alarm mechanisms notify family members and medical practitioners that there is a significant difference in a person's normal activities.
