A Survey on Internet of Things for Healthcare and Medication Management

Authors(3) :-S. Lavanya, G. Lavanya, J. Divyabharathi

A robust health monitoring system, that is quick and intelligent enough to monitor the patient automatically using IoT that collects the status information through these systems which would include patient's heart rate and sends an emergency alert to patient's doctor with his current status and full medical information. This would help the doctor to monitor his patient from anywhere and alsothe patient send his health status directly without visiting to the hospital. The model can be deployed at various hospitals and medical institutes. The system uses smart sensors that generates raw data information collected from sensor and send it to a database server where the data can be further analyzed and statistically maintained to be used by the medical experts. Maintaining a database server is a must to track the previous medical record of the patient providing a better and improved examining.
