Hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities will face considerable problems in the next decades due to the aging population's increasing healthcare demands, the complexity of modern healthcare delivery, and the rising expectations of healthcare consumers. Future healthcare development must continue to face problems, which call for more digital innovation. One of the goals for the ensuing decades will be to craft a clever plan to advance digital health. The smart Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are crucial elements to integrate digital health for enabling practical utilization in the field, given the large range of information technologies available. The smart IoT supports medical practitioners in their working process and facilitates the management of the patient’s health records. In this chapter, we explore some of the key smart IoT technologies in digital health and management including data acquisition, data transmission, and positioning. Each technology is briefly introduced to provide insights that will allow readers to adopt the essential technologies for potential future practical applications.
