Edge Computing Smart Healthcare Cooperative Architecture for COVID-19 Medical Facilities
Keywords:smart healthcare, cooperative systems, edge computing, IoT
Intelligent healthcare systems are a topic of interest in recent approaches due to novel possibilities created from edge hardware and software development. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic displayed the urge to speed up technological systems development to aid medical facilities. In this context, solutions must enhance the experience of both patients and healthcare professionals. Thus, we propose a novel cooperative architecture to improve healthcare facilities involved in pandemic control. On the one hand, this solution helps a faster recognition and link to the patients' data using reality augmentation resources. On the other hand, it helps monitor the conditions of medical professionals working in the facility and exposed to contamination danger.
