This paper refers to the paradigm of the “Internet of Things” (IoT) applied for various purposes in the healthcare domain. The functioning of this concept has enabled the collection of a number of technologies in the field of telecommunications, information technology, electronics and social sciences. MHealth as a part of eHealth could be defined as synergistic solution of mobile computing, medical sensor, and communications technologies for health-care, whose common goal is wirelessly monitoring the psycho-physical state of health or remote patient monitoring. This concept represents the evolution of e-health systems to wireless and mobile configurations. This paper aims to provide comprehensive review of recent solutions as well as possible future implementations from the m-Health perspective. Further developments in wireless communications and configurations will have a huge impact on future health-care delivery systems.
