FREMONT, CA: The target of every human being, no matter their age, gender, location, or health status, is to live an independent, comfortable, and healthy lifestyle. However, due to age, sickness, treatment, hospitalization, epidemic, pandemic, and other conditions, there are restrictions to such lifestyle.

Health monitoring systems have been developed for promoting comfortable, healthy living with the help of accessible communication. It will help monitor healthcare providers and patients closely, evaluate critical health factors, conduct regular consultation, and promote overall healthy living. In addition, smart health monitoring and support systems now have a higher edge of growth and acceptability for improved healthy living with the recent developments in information and communication technology (ICT) through the implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.

The lack of home health aides, nursing assistants, and home healthcare providers, is increasing worldwide, causing healthcare for the elderly costly. A health monitoring system can play a crucial role in decreasing a patient's physical touch, hospitalization, appointment time, queuing list, and total health costs, while minimizing medical staff's workload, pressure, and stress.

Development in ICT connectivity anywhere and anytime makes an essential contribution to the modern healthcare system's telemedicine and other portable medical platforms.

Instead of using nursing homes, hospitals, or other confinement facilities, smart home technology development promotes safe living and enhanced quality of healthcare support programs for the elderly and disabled for independent and secure lives while at home. As part of the smart home automation scheme, the healthcare module can enhance patients' healthcare facilities at home or in remote locations outside hospitals. Therefore, there is a decline in depression among patients that results from isolation in hospital wards.

Doctors may monitor patients from their office for a remote diagnosis, prescribe medication, and view measured critical health parameters. Software and hardware technology's dramatic progress in the smart home healthcare system enables patients, especially the elderly or disabled, to easily monitor some home appliances from devices like smartphones, tablets, laptops, the internet, and others.

Smart healthcare homes help remote patient monitoring reduce the workload of the healthcare providers during crucial times.
