Abstract: The intelligent use of resources enabled by Internet of Things has raised the expectations of the technical as well as the consumer community. However there are many challenges in designing an IoT healthcare system, like security, authentication and exchanging data. The IoT healthcare system, is transforming everyday physical objects, medical devices that surround us into an embedded smart healthcare system. Public healthcare has been paid an increasing attention given the human population and medical expenses exponential growth. It is well known that an effective monitoring healthcare system can detect abnormalities of health conditions in time and make diagnoses according to sensing (WBSN) data. This paper propose a general architecture of a smart mobile IoT healthcare system for monitoring patients risk using a smart phone and 5G. The design of multi-protocol unit for universal connectivity. Web and mobile applications developed to meet the needs of patients, doctors, laboratories analysis and hospitals services. The system advises and alerts in real time the doctors/medical assistants about the changing of vital parameters of the patients, such as body temperature, pulse and Oxygen in Blood etc… and also about important changes on environmental parameters, in order to take preventive measures, save lives in critical care and emergency situations.
