Internet of Things in health care significantly improves the requirement of medical facilities to patients and assists healthcare professionals. Since many elderly people require to be checked up on frequently due to high risk of life-threatening diseases, a health monitoring system using a cloud platform becomes effective in real-time observation. This paper focuses on a remote health monitoring system that tracks and updates the patient’s caretaker with the data collected from the patient. This enables the patient’s overseer to analyze the data being fed to them and subsequently provide treatment for the patient. Any sudden changes in the patient’s vitals will ensure that quick assistance be provided to the patient. The data stored in the cloud platform allows the process rate to be even quicker, thus reducing the time required to go to a hospital or waiting for treatment.
