Sitalakshmi Venkatraman, Sazia Parvin, Wathiq Mansoor, Amjad Gawanmeh


With the increasing use of technologies and digitally driven healthcare systems worldwide, there will be several opportunities for the use of big data in personalized healthcare. In addition, With the advancements and availability of internet of things (IoT) based point-of-care (POC) technologies, big data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) can provide useful methods and solutions in monitoring, diagnosis, and self-management of health issues for a better personalized healthcare. In this paper, we identify the current personalized healthcare trends and challenges. Then, propose an architecture to support big data analytics using POC test results of an individual. The proposed architecture can facilitate an integrated and self-managed healthcare as well as remote patient care by adapting three popular machine learning algorithms to leverage the current trends in IoT, big data infrastructures and data analytics for advancing personalized healthcare of the future.
