An Internet of Things Architecture for Elderly Home Healthcare

Abstract

The problem of providing effective and appropriate healthcare to elderly and disable people home has been increasingly talked around. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is believed to enable home healthcare management to mitigate some problems. This paper presents a new idea, that of IoT architecture to achieve connectivity with the patient, sensors and everything around it. This new solution makes both the elderly life easier and the healthcare process more effective. A web based platform and a disease management tool, provide the vehicles for the demonstration of the feasibility and the successful implementation and integration of the aforementioned infrastructure.
