The development of smart cities can improve the health of everyone. Sensors, mobility, scanning and Big Data are all tools available today to anticipate, help and care for patients in smart cities. Smart cities have many innovations to improve the lives of people but also their health, directly or indirectly. The doctor-patient relationship is already facilitated through video communication via smartphones and to the latest generation of Internet networks.

Patients are increasingly adopting connected objects, especially to monitor their heart rate, measure their number of steps and analyze their sleep. As part of the patient care journey, this data can be of great interest to caregivers who can also use it for remote and continuous monitoring. By retrieving data from mobile devices, doctors and other practitioners have a 360-degree view of patients in real-time. In addition, fast access to any secure terminal allows them to obtain data faster and determine the appropriate protocol of care.
