Abstract:The recent advancements intechnology and the availability of the Internet make it possible toconnect various devices that can communicate with each other andshare data. The Internet of Things (IOT) is a new concept that allowsusers to connect various sensors and smart devices to collectreal-time data from the external environment.IOT is ableto give advanced level of services to society, business.
Things getinteresting when smart devices combined with smart services to createcompound application. IOTdevices can be used in many fields. They make the users’ day-to-daylife more comfortable.IOTcan be used in different areas such as manufacturing or business,retailing and security.Aspopulation is increasing day by day, caretaker demands are alsoincreasing. Hence patient health checking systems are gainingimportance these days. It’s important tomonitor various medical parameters.
Hence the IOT can play a majorrole in Healthcare applications. Differentsensors are used to collect temperature, blood pressure, sugar leveletc., which are used to check the health condition of the patient.Communicating the collected information to the doctor, making correctdecision on the data collected and notifying the patient is thechallenging task in the IOT.Keyword:Healthcare, Internet of Things.1.INTRODUCTIONHealthis one of the most important challenges for human being. In hospitalsthere are doctors and caretakers for continuous monitoring thepatients.
Their ECG, heartbeat, temperature are continuouslymonitored. There is no provision to check the parameters when thepatients return to home. Patient’s data (temperature, heart rate,ECG, position) can be often measured and sent to server. Period oftransmission can be set. Using webpage, doctor can view his patient’shealth status.
When any of the parameter goes beyond the thresholdvalue he will get an alert notification.Internetis very important part in our daily life. Internet has changed howpeople live, work, play and learn. It serves for much purposefinance, educations, Business, Entertainment, Industries, Shopping,Social Networking, etc. Internet of Things (IOT) is the next new megasystem of Internet. This visualizes a world where several objects cansense, communicate, share information over an Internet Protocol (IP).
The objects which are connected collect the data, analyze and used tostart required action which provides an intelligent network foranalyzing, planning and decision- making. It is generally consideredas connecting objects to the Internet and using that connection forcontrol and remote monitoring of those objects. This definition wasonly a part of IOT evolution considering the machine to machinemarket today. Actual definition of IOT is creating a brilliantinvisible network which can be controlled and planned throughinternet. Products developed based on IOT including embeddedtechnology which allows them to exchange information among each otheror the Internet and it is assumed that around 8 to 50 billion deviceswould be connected by the end of 2020. Since these devices comeonline, they provide better life style, create safer, more engagedcommunities and revolutionized healthcare. This entire concept of IOTstands on wireless network, sensors and gateway, which enables userto communicate and access the application/information so add to anIOT framework which gives secure health awareness checking.TheIOT technology has a huge amount of data about human, objects, timeand space.
By combining the current Internet technology and IoTprovides a large amount of space and smart service based on low-costsensors and wireless communication.
