Secure Automated In-home Patient Monitoring

Early detection and prevention of diseases rely heavily on in-home patient monitoring. The construction of a wireless sensor network to monitor a patient in his or her home is presented in this study. Various body sensors are attached to the patient’s body in order to collect data such as temperature, blood pressure, ECG, and pulse rate. Most monitoring systems currently employ a personal computer (PC) as a local database to store patient body parameters prior to transferring them to the hospital. In this case, a cell phone replaces the requirement for a computer. The body parameters recorded by sensors are kept private and sent to the hospital in a secure manner. To accomplish security, a variant of Ciphertext Policy Attribute-Based Encryption (CP-ABE) with a double encryption approach is utilised. Because the patient always has his or her phone with them when they leave the house, outside monitoring is also enabled by the mobile phone. As a result, the mobile phone serves as a local database, obviating the need for a computer and allowing for outdoor surveillance. Finally, a temperature sensor is used to implement real-time monitoring. A temperature sensor, an analogue to digital converter (ADC), a microcontroller, an LCD, and a Bluetooth device make up the sensing circuit.
