Due to its very high potential, the Internet of Things (IoT) concept has been integrated in modern telemedicine systems. These systems enable real-time monitoring of patients at home, by using devices for acquiring various medical parameters or wearable devices that allow real-time monitoring of the medical signals. The data are transmitted to a medical specialist's office via the Internet and can be stored in cloud for further analysis. This article proposes an IoT architecture that can be used in healthcare for monitoring ECG signals independently acquired by the patient, using a mobile tele-electrocardiograph, without the help of a specialist. The main features of the mobile device are described, as well as how these features are integrated into the proposed IoT architecture. The article also tackles the security issues that may occur during the using of this system: integrity, confidentiality and authenticity.
