English abstract
The connection of intelligent devices and agents via the Internet of Things (IoT) provides a foundation for smart healthcare systems to monitor the status of patients, their activities, and their environments and to provide services that can improve health. These smart health ecosystems connect patients, caregivers, and medical professionals with each other and with data captured by sensors and other devices. Healthcare applications using this data can store and track relevant metrics, provide alerts when metrics are outside expected ranges, and provide feedback and recommendations to assist in the management of a wide variety of health issues including weight management, stroke rehabilitation, and glucose monitoring. This chapter provides an overview of different types of IoT-based patient-focused healthcare applications providing these types of services. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the major challenges related to healthcare technology using the Internet of Things and the future potential of these applications.
