Internet of medical things (IoMT) or healthcare IoT
The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), also known as healthcare IoT, has different applications. Examples of IoMT include diagnosis of diseases, preventive medicine, faster and more accurate decision making and improved quality of life for chronic patients.
It is the collection of medical devices and applications that connect to healthcare information (IT) systems through online computer networks. Medical devices connected allow the machine-to-machine communication, that is the basis of IoMT. Additionally, IoMT devices link to IT systems and/or cloud platforms on which captured data can be stored and analysed.
