Internet of Health: Is medicine ready to Big Data Analytics?
What is Big Data: data, process of analysis or concept? There are many definitions that describe Big Data as big amount of data or as some methods of analytics of big amount of data. But more applicable is the approach that Big Data is the concept that includes: data with specific characteristics (V3 – volume, velocity, variety, or V5 – plus value and veracity), methods of analytics (the number of different software is growing), and devices, infrastructure, and most important – the ideas how to configurate all into needed solution.
Another concept is the Internet of Things that based on Big Data Analytics. There are some established configurations of IoT: Smart Home, Smart Health, Smart Manufacturing, Smart City, Smart Mobility, Smart Energy, Smart Farming, Smart Earth & Ocean, Smart Circular Economy.
Smart Health or Internet of Health (or any IoT configuration) has the human in core of concept. I should point out that more easy to accept the medical approaches for different configurations of IoT than accept IoT approaches for Health Care. Why I can insist on this statement? My statement leans on long-term period of complexity of accepting biorhythmology and gravitational biology in medicine.
But biorhythmology and gravitational biology have the direct application for Internet of Health or IoT. The person controls own different medical data day by day during everyday life. And this new situation should be viewed as medical data collecting under gravitational forces and natural biorhythms influences to person.
Three sections of multifactorial regulation of human body should be mentioned: environmental, behavioral and homeostatic. Environmental section includes circannual rhythm (annual) and circadian rhythm (daily). Behavioral section includes body orientation towards gravitational forces (lying down, standing, sitting); active movement (walking, jogging, exercises); passive movement (lift and transport) with influence of acceleration forces; as well as sleep, emotional reactions, eating. Homeostatic section includes the processes of neurohumoral regulation of the body. This section consists of functional systems of the body, described by Russian scientist K.V. Sudakov and his following.
Thus creating Internet of Health configuration and implementing Big Data Analytics the medical data should be considered in terms of three sections of multifactorial regulation of human body.
