Internet of things in healthcare: Application and challenges
Author(s): Arnav Rawat
Abstract: The research topic gives an overview of the use of Iot in healthcare, it’s working, applications and the challenges it faces regarding those. Iot helps in connecting devices used all around for different purposes which make use of sensors, software etc, and connects them together over the internet or some other network. It’s a giant network which helps in sharing data and more between different types of devices. It provides with a platform where data from all devices are collected and is shared with other devices for better understanding of the needs and requirements of people and increasing the user experience overall. In Iot, the data is collected from different patients, their experience and reaction to different medicines, procedures and overall health care system, helps in making healthcare more effective by giving the researchers and doctors a better understanding of how to make procedures more effective and also understanding diseases better due to which the mistakes made in diagnosis would be reduced by a huge number. When devices involved in healthcare are connected to each other through IoT it also becomes easier for health care workers to get a hold on the patient health stats at all times making their care more effective, and also increasing the number of patients a single healthcare worker can handle. The paper thus focuses on the applications of IoT including the quality of data, security of patient information with IoT, Patient behaviour analysis, and the challenges associated with these. The question we focus to answer through the paper is “Is IoT a friend of boon to the healthcare system and how it’s future looks”.
