Despite the tremendous growth in health technology, COVID-19 has shown the need to make the health system more robust and efficient.
IoT paradigm shows strong pertinence in healthcare service by enabling doctors and
patients to interact more often, reducing healthcare costs. Wearable devices allow patients to access personalized information, doctors to monitor the health of patients more effectively, and hospitals to monitor medical equipment, medical staff, and the spread of infection. IoT devices collect a vast amount of data, which gives useful insights to improve decision-making capability. However, as the number of IoT devices increases exponentially, processing this vast data and extracting useful information is challenging. With numerous benefits arising from integrating IoT and healthcare services, several challenges exist, such as data security and privacy, as devices transmit data in real-time, as well as data overload and inaccuracy.
This special issue aims to publish the latest IoT advancements in healthcare services. The main objective is to empower researchers to explore the key concepts that can lead to the practical, feasible, and robust integration of IoT in healthcare service to deliver fast, end-to-end, and reliable service to patients.
