Abstract: We live in the revolutionary era of electronic waves connecting our everyday gadget. The internet of thinghs (IoT ) allows this to happen , through which connected devices communicate each other. Gadget collect, analyze and share data coming in via their sensors, and make certain if consequence of style decisions.A confluence of forces induced healthcare's embrace of digital health, including changing consuler expectations, a new and disruptive reinbursement model, and rising health care cost. Artificial intelligence and digital assistants (both text based Chatbots and voice based devices) are key components in the smooth operation of IoT networks.The internet of medical thinghs (I o MT) is about a connected infrastructure of medical devices, software applications, wealth system, and services. However, it could extend way beyond the hospital. In the future we can imagine that a smart watch used at home will send back vital signs to a GP's. tablet about a patient, toilets with microchips similar to the MC Io Biostra MPS win monitor urine- so- you won't need to bring your urine sample to doctor any more. Sensors will log movement’s patterns, bathroom sensors will follow patterns, of water usage, or digital mirrors with measure basic vital signs, or, we could imagine connected device put in practice: it already allows monitoring patient's sleep patterns mobility and gait, it can pick up on their breathing rates or detect if someone has a fall, it can monitor heart beats and even provide information about their emotional state. What if all that information could be sent back to the hospital for control in the future?
