Any delay introduced in healthcare applications could critically affect the health of patients. Edge computing paradigm has been introduced recently as an alternative to develop such applications, where a rapid response is necessary to ensure the immediate assistance of patients when they need help. In this chapter, the authors propose an edge-of-things computing-based architecture, which illustrates the benefits of the realization of IoT under edge computing approach. The proposed architecture offers significant advantages: 1) it reduces the latency time in the data transmission for processing and analysis; 2) it improves the response time of the delivery of notifications or emergency alerts; 3) it provides real-time processing and big data analysis in the proximity of data sources; 4) it enables interoperability between heterogeneous devices; and 5) it provides security and QoS in the data transmission. The usefulness and relevance of the proposed architecture is evaluated through the implementation of a smart healthcare system applied to a medical case study.
