Internet of Things (IoT) is the global interconnection of several heterogeneous devices. It allows people and “things” to connect anytime, anywhere using a variety of wired or wireless communication networks. It will have its presence in all sectors of human lives including healthcare. The market for the IoT in healthcare is growing steadily. IoT healthcare helps in effectively managing health and thus improving the quality of life. This paper provides a brief introduction into IoT healthcare or the use of IoT in the healthcare domain.
