    This book covers the fundamentals of IoT and healthcare systems for carrying out system architectures, protocols, wearable devices, and interoperability. It explores major challenges in artificial intelligence (AI) and smart computing in resource-constrained IoT-based applications along with cost, energy efficiency, and the availability of quality service.

    Healthcare Systems and Health Informatics: Using Internet of Things explores the role of AI and smart computing in health informatics and healthcare with an emphasis on clinical data management and analysis for precise prediction and prompt action. It presents cutting-edge tracking, monitoring, real-time assistance, and security for IoT in healthcare and broadly discusses wearable sensors and IoT devices and their role in smart living assistance. The book goes on to describe a system model and architecture for a clear picture of energy conservation–based IoT in healthcare and explains the challenges and opportunities with IoT-based healthcare industries. A study of the threats and impacts, along with the need for information security, is also included.

    The chapters are written by experts in the field, and this book provides a comprehensive description of the important aspects of IoT and health from a beginner- to advanced-level perspective and is ideal for researchers, academicians, students, persons in industry, technologists, and entrepreneurs.
