IoT based e-Health solutions is an upcoming trend which will revolutionize the healthcare in the near future. IoT has evolved from micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), wireless technologies and Internet which together offer connectivity of systems, microelectronic devices, and medical services and allow data processing at the edge. That at the same time allows to save computational resources and avoid unnecessary point of failure, such as centralized synchronization point. Monitoring of patients’ vital signs parameters (measured at home) is achieved by using modern Internet of Things technology which provides networkable connections between portable diagnostic sensors, their cell phones, cloud data storage with patients’ Personal Health Records and professional health providers. This paper explores possibilities of using fog computing approach to shift data processing and computations from cloud to the edge and to build a multi-scope infrastructure for mHealth and citizen-observation system, based on SOA approach.
