Smart healthcare systems, made up of advanced wearable devices, internet of things (IoT) technologies and mobile internet connectivity, allow significant medical information to be easily and regularly transmitted over public networks. Personal patient information and clinical records are stored on hospitals and healthcare centres and can be accessed remotely by healthcare workers. Due to the widespread increase in the sheer volume of medical data being collected and created all the time, it has never been more important to ensure that such information is collected, stored and processed in a reliable and secure manner.
