The need arises to get or to provide proper health-care services, as the population is increasing worldwide day by day. This need-gap may be build up with the help of modern technologies. One of the nucleus technologies of IoT developments in healthcare system is Body Sensor Network (BSN) technology, where a patient can be monitored using a collection of wireless sensor nodes. Sensor is one such technology which can provide the means for Internet of Things based health-care monitoring system. Internet of Things (IoT) method is fitted to healthcare communication for accessing the patient’s medical parameters in local and remote area. Without taken into consideration security concern the development of this new technology in healthcare applications makes patient privacy susceptible. Security should be prerequisite while handling the data regarding health. Services are created in an effective manner after fundamental requirements get satisfied, so that social significance can be achieved in various scenarios. We propose a secure IoT-based healthcare system using BSN, which can bring about those requirements adequately. In this Paper we have addressed the use of IoT in Healthcare system, and review on various works carried out on this research area with which a proposed methodology is been discussed.
