Abstract: There has been significant interest in integration of internet of things (IOT) and healthcare both in academic and the corporate world. This can be seen from the fact by the number of conferences held and number of special issues in journals that have been published. To establish further in this domain, the purpose of this research is two-fold. First it does literature review in healthcare and IOT from 151 papers published from 1998 to 2016. Second, it summarises findings from literature review in two parts. In the first part, it identifies the antecedents that impact both affordable quality healthcare and developing an enterprise network for IOT. In the second part, it integrates factors that affect both affordable healthcares with IOT. The results of this research will be useful for both practitioners and academicians as the paper discusses how to design a IOT based healthcare network that will reduce cost of healthcare while preventing chronic diseases. The paper also shows the limitations of the present research while describing stimuli for further research.
