Wireless network technology-based internet of things (IoT) has increased significantly and exciting to study, especially vital sign monitoring (body temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure). Vital sign monitoring is crucial to carry out to strengthen medical diagnoses and the continuity of patient health. Vital sign monitoring conducted by medical personnel to diagnose the patient's health condition is still manual. Medical staff must visit patients in each room, and the equipment used is still cable-based. Vital sign examination like this is certainly not practical because it requires a long time in the process of diagnosis. The proposed vital sign monitoring system design aims to assist medical personnel in diagnosing the patient's illness. Vital sign monitoring system uses HRM-2511E sensor for heart detection, DS18b20 sensor for body temperature detection, and MPX5050DP sensor for blood pressure detection. Vital sign data processing uses a raspberry pi as a data delivery media-based internet of things (IoT). Based on the results of the vital sign data retrieval shows that the tool designed functioning correctly. The accuracy of the proposed device for body temperature is 99.51%, heart rate is 97.90%, and blood pressure is 97.69%.
