    The “Internet-of-Things” (IoT), is a new computation platform, in which “Things” are the fundamental computational elements that are characterized with some form of digital-based capabilities and utilizes various embedded technologies to connect through the Internet with the external environment through standard protocols. Healthcare services and systems become very complex and encompass a vast number of entities (software systems, doctors, patients, devices, etc.) that are characterized by shared, distributed and heterogeneous devices, sensors, and information sources with varieties of clinical and medical settings. This paper presents an agent-based architecture that supports adhoc system configurations emphasizing the strategies for achieving real-time smart monitoring in SmartHealth environments with privacy based interaction protocol to protect privacy of entities while sharing information in the environment.
