In recent years there is a huge expansion in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) and Mobility in transform a way for the innovative kinds of secure data information across the industrial sector in the current generation. Healthcare industries are innovative and are creating energetic integrated platforms that facilitate the aggregation of data from a broad range of wearable devices and the concerned applications that are connected to the medical devices. Such platforms also give out a foster real-time engagement with patients and also it enables organizations to generate actionable monitoring on the health of each individual patient. There are especially certain required standards for healthcare organizations that provide the end to end care to the elderly and disabled patients. To support healthy and safe living of elderly individuals or disabled patients, a system that can monitor their daily activities. In this chapter a secure mobile and IoT based platform can help in tracking out essential vitals, providing personalized tips, reminders and educational content on medical conditions in a proactive and timely manner. Also this chapter discusses about how mobility in IoT lead healthcare involves the convergence of mobile, cloud, devices and social media to enable patients, care takers, and healthcare providers to access secure data and improve the quality along with outcome of both health and social responsibility.
