Healthcare Informatics and Monitoring System based on Fog Computing

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
Wireless sensor networks and internet of things are widely used in healthcare industry. In today's scenario wearable sensors become very popular devices to monitor patients at high risk. Patients who are suffering from long lasting sickness visits hospital at multiple time for their regular check-up. Treatment from this kind of system increases the expenditure in overall for the patients. However, with recent technological innovation such as cloud and fog computing, with minimal expense on

In this paper, we provide an analysis of fog computing role over cloud computing to monitor patient's health to provide context aware services without delay to the end user when it required to patient and medical practitioner. Three layer architecture is proposed for real time domain data storage, processing and communication. This increase the capability of cloud computing with the integration to fog computing for current and future use application.
