The past few years have shown a tremendous advancement in the area of Internet-of-Things (IoT) enabled solutions. The technological developments like Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), and smart mobile technologies are the primary contributors to this evolving trend. In this paper, a brief study of the IoT- aware architecture for automatic monitoring and tracking of patients, personnel, and biomedical devices within hospitals and nursing institutes and some related work has been discussed.
IoT, Smart health care, WSN, RFID.
