The Internet of Things (IoT) is the infrastructure that enables the process of collecting data using various devices which in turn communicate with each other and store this data over the cloud. This helps to retrieve, analyze, and communicate data to any part of the world faster with great efficiency. IoT has indeed opened the doors to endless new possibilities in different areas and industries. From smart home appliances to remotely observing and controlling different objects to self-driven cars and whatnot. The healthcare industry has still not leveraged the true power of this modern IoT revolution. Specifically, when it comes to monitoring the health of elderly people, the techniques used today are still not robust and lack conviction. This has been an area of concern for a long time, and it is an even bigger challenge to remotely monitor the health condition. In this paper, our goal is to depict the current situation of the technology of the health monitoring projects based on IoT and propose an improvement in the actual practices currently prevalent in remote monitoring of the health of elderly people. We will also try to forecast the trend of various health parameters demonstrated in the paper beforehand to make the concerned people aware with precision if any alarming situation is spotted so that instant action can be taken, thus ensuring a reduction of casualties.
