Abstract: From Bluetooth enabled hearing aids to robotic caretakers, wearable and smart devices industries are immensely contributing to the development of the healthcare industry with the help of Internet of Things (IoT). Latest technologies like Artificial Intelligence, 3D Printing, Big data, Machine Learning, Advanced Sensors, Mobile Applications and other technologies will continue to generate lot of opportunities for Med tech organizations. Some of the latest healthcare innovations practiced at present might have been seen or read by some of us only in science fiction movies or science fiction stories a long ago. Presently, IoT and Artificial Intelligence is creating a revolution in healthcare industry when it comes to diagnosis and treatment of varied diseases. From smartphones to robots, artificial intelligence is already making its presence felt in healthcare industry and as such it is progressively recognizing the transformative nature of IoT technologies which drives innovation in the development of connected medical devices. Gradual increase in the number of connected medical devices with the advent of technology advancements helps to capture and transmit medical related data wherever and whenever required to the concerned people and thus, it gave birth to the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), where the Internet of Things (IoT) and healthcare meet. The IoMT helps to constantly monitor and alter (if required) the behvaiour of the patient and his/her health status in real time and also supports healthcare organizations to effectively streamline clinical processes, patient information and related work flows to enhance its operational productivity. The IoMT has made and continues to make the delivery of P4 Medicine (Predictive, Preventive, Personalized and Participatory) even for remote locations with the help of connected sensors and devices helping in real-time patient care. Io MT helps doctors and caregivers to provide patient care and support by constantly monitoring data related to patients through mobile apps and connected medical devices even when patient(s) or doctor(s) are located at remote locations. This research paper discusses about six use cases explaining how Io MT is applied in healthcare industry.
