Abstract

Currently, the exchange of patient information continues to be a challenge. The growing demand for health care makes it necessary to enhance the exchange of health-related information efficiently. IoT makes data available easily to exchange health-related information for health professionals’. Internet of Things (IoT) services can improve the quality of life and help health care professionals in their decision-making. Health records can be exchanged easily through the IoT network. The IoT is growing technology to integrate all smart devices, resources, and systems to discover drugs, treatments, and health records of patients in one network. Despite the advantages of this technology, there are a lot of challenges facing the healthcare organizations to utilize it especially in the context of developing countries. As such, the researchers carried out the literature survey for the related information in order to investigate the current issues and the factors that affect medical professionals and IT practitioners in order to use IoT in health information exchange. The purpose of this study is to help researchers and practitioners to develop the models for utilizing the IoT in health information exchange among healthcare providers. The researchers found the main critical factors to be, intention to use, user satisfaction, collaboration environment, trust, efforts, and service quality, which must be taken into consideration. From the review, a number of critical factors were found to be essential in the utilization of IoT.
