In modern civilization, healthcare is a significant problem. The Internet of Things (IoT) technology is appealing to everyone because it has the ability to change the present healthcare system and address the problems that the aging population and the steady rise in chronic sickness are posing for the healthcare system. This chapter focuses on the conventional healthcare system that has been used in the past to deliver healthcare services as well as the integration of IoT, a new technology, into the healthcare system to modernize patient care. To provide services more quickly and effectively, this chapter illustrates how IoT has changed the conventional approach to monitoring healthcare. Finally, a study on different IoT-based healthcare monitoring systems will be conducted, along with a comparison of numerous IoT-based healthcare systems to show their advantages and disadvantages. The industry's digital transformation is piquing the curiosity of academics and healthcare practitioners alike. In this work, we attempt to examine the research question about the management and commercial uses of digital technology by different stakeholders. This chapter examines IoT applications for medical purposes, the different ways it is affecting the healthcare industry, and some potential future routes for its growth, such as Bio-IoT and Nano-IoT or the Internet of Nano Things. From the perspective of monitoring patients' vital signs, wireless body area networks (WBANs) are crucial components of a system. The WBANs consist of tiny smart devices that communicate wirelessly and are implanted within or on top of the patient. We analyze the literature on digital transformation in healthcare to answer this question. According to our findings, previous research can be grouped into five clusters: organizational characteristics, patient-centered approaches, operational efficiency of healthcare providers, and research techniques. These clusters are linked to illustrate how various technology adoption approaches enhance service providers' operational effectiveness. Research in a variety of directions is recommended, with implications for management as well.
