Internet of Things (IoT) platforms applied to health promise to offer solutions to the challenges in healthcare systems by providing tools for lowering costs while increasing efficiency in diagnostics and treatment. Many of the works on this topic focus on explaining the concepts and interfaces between different parts of an IoT platform, including the generation of knowledge based on smart sensors gathering bio-signals from the human body which are processed by data mining and more recently, deep neural networks hosted on cloud computing infrastructure. These techniques are designed to serve as useful intelligent companions to healthcare professionals in their practice. In this work we present details about the implementation of an IoT Platform for real-time analysis and management of a network of bio-sensors and gateways, as well as the use of a cloud deep neural network architecture for the classification of ECG data into multiple cardiovascular conditions.
