Book Description

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 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 the Internet of Things explores the role of Artificial Intelligence 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 discusses broadly wearable sensors and IoT devices and their role in smart living assistance. The book goes onto describing 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.

Chapters written by experts in the field, this book provides a comprehensive description of the important aspects of IoT and Health from a beginner to advance level perspective and is ideal for researchers, academicians, students, persons in industry, technologists, and entrepreneurs.
