Development of an IoT-based and cloud-based disease prediction and diagnosis system for healthcare using machine learning algorithms

Fardin Abdali-Mohammadi, Maytham N. Meqdad, Seifedine Kadry


Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the practice of designing and modeling objects connected to the Internet through computer networks. In the past few years, IoT-based health care programs have provided multidimensional features and services in real time. These programs provide hospitalization for millions of people to receive regular health updates for a healthier life. Induction of IoT devices in the healthcare environment have revitalized multiple features of these applications. In this paper, a disease diagnosis system is designed based on the Internet of Things. In this system, first, the patient's courtesy signals are recorded by wearable sensors. These signals are then transmitted to a server in the network environment. This article also presents a new Hybrid Decision Making approach for diagnosis. In this method, a feature set of patient signals is initially created. Then these features go unnoticed on the basis of a learning model. A diagnosis is then performed using a neural fuzzy model. In order to evaluate this system, a specific diagnosis of a specific disease, such as a diagnosis of a patient's normal and unnatural pulse, or the diagnosis of diabetic problems, will be simulated.
