Introduction: The Internet of Things (IoT) is gaining popularity in several industries owing to the autonomous and low-cost functioning of its sensors. In medical and healthcare usage, IoT gadgets provide an environment to detect patients' medical problems, such as blood volume, oxygen concentration, pulse, temperatures, etc. and take emergency action as necessary. The problem of imbalanced energy usage across biosensor nodes slows down the transmission of patient data to distant centres and has a detrimental effect on the health industry. In addition, the patient's sensitive information is sent through the insecure Internet and is exposed to potential threats. For clinical uses, information privacy and stability against hostile traffic constitute a further research challenge.
Methods: This article proposes a Secured and Energy-Efficient System (SEES-IoMT) e-healthcare utilizing the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) monitoring, the main goal of which is to reduce the connectivity cost and energy usage between sensing devices while feasibly forwarding the medical data. SEES-IoMT also guarantees the clinical data of the patients against unverified and malevolent nodes to enhance the privacy and security of the system.
Result and Discussion: In consideration of the memory and power limitations of healthcare IoT gadgets, this approach is designed to be very lightweight. A thorough examination of this system's safety is performed to demonstrate its reliability.
Conclusion: In terms of computing speed and security, the research compares SEES-IoMT to relevant methods in the IoT medical environment to demonstrate its applicability and resilience.
