Abstract


This article presented a development of a low-cost IoT-Based Health Monitoring System, using an ATMega328p microcontroller, integrated with different sensors to monitor pre-determined health parameters related to heart problem such as heart rate, pulse rate, body temperature and blood pressure of a patient. The health data are sent wirelessly to an IOT-platform, where they can be monitored real-time by doctors or nurses. The system is battery-powered, and the sensors used in the system are attached to a home-care patient, where the patient’s health can be recorded and monitored in real-time. Any abnormal changes will trigger an alert system to alert the doctors and nurses. A time-series monitoring of a patient’s health can thus be done remotely to ensure optimum monitoring of a home-care patient, where a potential saving in time, cost and money are expected.
