Managing, diagnosis, prognosis, continuous monitoring, early detection, and preventing chronic diseases for patients and elderly people have been gained a crucial role nowadays. However, elderly people with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and mental diseases, need special health care. With the help of the internet of things (IoT) technologies, remote health monitoring (RHM) helps patients, caregivers, and countries for improving healthcare services, such as medical files services, mobile healthcare (mhealth), telemedicine services, and sensing technology. Moreover, RHM aims to reduce hospitalized demands and costs. The main contribution of the proposed study is to review RHM studies based on IoT technologies. Moreover, the challenges and possible future trends of RMH are highlighted.
