    Abstract

    The fast and wide advancement of the Internet of Things (IoT) boosted by the remarkable development of sensor networks, RFID, software platforms and the Internet as a global container of IoT, have opened the appetite of several vertical industries to include IoT in their strategic vision for the coming years. Academic institutions have also established projects to vigorously investigate the potential of IoT and develop new protocols in all layers to suit IoT applications and/or adapt the current IP protocols to suit it. Some organizations have already implemented IoT and others have plans to implement it according to Gartner Inc. study. Healthcare industry is no exception, have already adopted IoT, and are planning to use it extensively in the following years for the benefits of patients, elderly people and caregivers. In this research paper, we develop a system architecture to manage IoT for the smart healthcare. For IoT in healthcare to succeed, it should be reliable, effective, well performing, secure and profitable for caregivers. This will guarantee continued operation and service delivery for patients and elderly to avoid any health risks.
