A Pervasive and Personalized Smart Healthcare System using IOT
In the last few years the Internet-of-Things (IoT) has been enabling solutions that are leading to development of
many innovative and beneficial computer applications. Smart devices such as Near Field Communication(NFC), Wireless
Sensor Network (WSN) and smart mobile technologies help in leading the IOT vision to a newer and better level .
In this paper, an innovative idea to monitor patient’s biological health parameters in real time is proposed. With a goal of
providing better healthcare services to the needy patients, we put forward a Pervasive and Personalized smart healthcare
system (PPHS) using IOT. This system relies on different inter-dependant technologies such as, NFCs, WSN, Accelerometer
for motion detection using smartphones etc. These smart devices cooperate with each other using a CoAP/NFC /SOAP
network infrastructure. The PPSHS is able to collect, in real time, patient’s physiological parameters via a Sensing Network
composed of nodes integrating NFC and WSN functionalities. Sensed data are delivered to a control center where an admin
application in cloud makes them easily available to both local and remote users via a SOAP web service.
