With rise of smart medical sensors, cloud computing and the health care technologies, connected health is getting remarkable consideration everywhere. Recently, the Internet of Things (IoT) has brought the vision of a smarter world into reality. Cloud computing fits well in this scenario as it can provide high quality of clinical experience. Thus an IoT-cloud convergence can play a vital role in healthcare by offering better insight of heterogeneous healthcare content supporting quality care. It can also support powerful processing and storage facilities of huge data to provide automated decision making. This book aims to report quality research on recent advances towards IoT-Cloud convergence for smart healthcare, more specifically to the state-of-the-art approaches, design, development and innovative use of those convergence methods for providing insights into healthcare service demands. Students, researchers, and medical experts in the field of information technology, medicine, cloud computing, soft computing technologies, IoT and the related fields can benefit from this handbook in handling real-time challenges in healthcare. Current books are limited to focus either on soft computing algorithms or smart healthcare. Integration of smart and cloud computing models in healthcare resulting in connected health is explored in detail in this book.
