The Utilization of the Internet of Things for a Learning Health System

Robert Steele
Abstract—The Internet of Things, incorporating new device, sensor and smartphone technologies can provide amongst other things a means for more extensive and more real-time, public health data collection. It can enable a far more sophisticated understanding of public health and how it changes over time than previously possible, and furthermore provide a new mechanism for a learning health system. In this paper we describe how the Internet of Things supports such a learning health system, and also how such a system can help contribute to new techniques for the advancement of healthcare knowledge.

Index Terms—Internet of things, public health, wireless sensor networks.
