Muhammad Shahid F.* and Kadher Nivas R.
Cloud computing is a model which provides on-demand delivery of Information Technology (IT) related capabilities or resources through the Internet to the outside world. Despite the advantages of cloud computing, the security of the data and resources is still doubtful which affect the cloud adoption. The raising amount of personal and confidential data brings up attention on storing the data securely. Data can be composed of financial transactions, vital documents, and multimedia contents. In a broad sense m-health represents the delivery of healthcare services through mobile devices, the function of which is to capture, analyze, store and transmit health information from multiple sources, including sensors and other biomedical acquisition systems. This paper surveys IoT for healthcare together with services and applications, security and technologies for promoting the corresponding services. In addition, this paper is going to invoke cloud-based technology and health IoT including Internet of medical things. Next, current standardization activities and recommendations are outlined. Proposals for the future work conclude the presentation. Paper also shed light on the constraints associated with cloud adoption for medical field. Paper concludes that medical field can take advantage of cloud services to offer novel patient care applications, reduce costs and management, and ultimately provide quality healthcare services.
