Digital health broadly incorporates categories such as mobile health (mHealth), information technology comprising electronic health records, reimbursements (IT), wearable devices, telehealth and telemedicine. Recent advancements on this front includes Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem, which provides a connected ecosystem for flawless information flow within various technologies involved at hardware, software and networking layer. These enabling technologies include devices embedded with sensor, actuator and communication protocol, which transmits and receives the data in real time. Along with other end applications such as smart energy transmission, smart homes, intelligent logistics and smart towns, healthcare provides an attractive opportunity area for successful implementation. Current estimates predict that nearly 60% of organizations a have implemented IoT in healthcare industry in partial or complete form, to deliver value to patients and transition from disjoint and reactive model towards interoperable and proactive service delivery model. Internet of medical things (IoMT)-enabled machine-to-machine interaction between devices in patient's body environment with enabling architecture, is predicted to provide higher impact in chronic disease care. Further, current topic would broadly review clinician side transformations of technology, explaining how IoT applications would create value for patients in different scenario and its relevance in clinical settings.
