How IoT Can Significantly Improve Healthcare in the Context of Smart City

- The widening gap between required and available medical workforce, and
- The lack of capabilities to share centrally available clinical data in real time.
This paper focuses on addressing these three challenges by leveraging digital technologies best suited for different scenarios, enabling a city’s administration to increase their healthcare ratings and strengthen their bid to be acknowledged as a Smart City.
