About this book


This book provides an analysis of the role of fog computing, cloud computing, and Internet of Things in providing uninterrupted context-aware services as they relate to Healthcare 4.0. The book considers a three-layer patient-driven healthcare architecture for real-time data collection, processing, and transmission. It gives insight to the readers for the applicability of fog devices and gateways in Healthcare 4.0 environments for current and future applications. It also considers aspects required to manage the complexity of fog computing for Healthcare 4.0 and also develops a comprehensive taxonomy.

  • Presents the role of fog computing, cloud computing, and Internet of Things in relation to Healthcare 4.0;
  • Features case studies to demonstrate the process model, showcasing future challenges associated with the fog computing for Healthcare 4.0;
  • Demonstrates the enabling technologies for Healthcare 4.0 with their technical, societal, and future implications and fog-assisted security and privacy for Healthcare 4.0 in context.
