Nowadays, the heart-related disease is rapidly rising. Most patients, in some cases, may not identify their health condition. Even in rural areas, doctors are not available 24x7. Due to the advancement of modern technology, these diseases can be detected early and can be treated on time. So, the developed device can continuously track the patient's heartbeat and temperature, and the recorded data can be sent to the concerned doctor so that treatment can be provided to the patient. Here the IoT (Internet of Things) is being used for monitoring the patient's health status and send wirelessly to the IoT server. This device can also be monitored from remote places. This device is mainly helpful for aged and disabled people who find it difficult to go to doctors daily or for patients who need continuous monitoring of their health status. The designed hardware will capture the real-time heartrate and temperature value and send the data to the concern IoT server using any mobile or Wi-Fi network having with internet facility. Before sending the data the preprocessing is being done by the attached microcontroller in the respective sensors module. The value sent in the IoT server will be used for generating the online graph through the Application Program Interface (API) that are used in developing the web and mobile application. In this system the authenticated user can view the output trough developed mobile application web application.
