The future of using consumer devices with a variety of sensors to assist in health care is extremely promising. It may solve a plethora of complicated procedures, simplify tracking human health, consolidating all the data and deploying consistent policies across all the devices to impose the regulatory privacy compliance. These sensors may be carried by a human, deployed at spaces, such as home or work, within SmartCities and Municipalities. All the data/information may be uploaded into the Cloud (see Figure 1). However, these approaches have been discussed for decades now [1, 2, 3]. Most of the problems have been exacerbated by the lack of privacy and regulations which limited the use and sharing of data to only most conservative cases. The following two paragraphs summarize past/present and future of systems support for Smart HealthCare specifically exploring sensors. There are numerous references in support of this discussion, author chose almost a dozen of his own publications over the course of past 20 years.
