Mobile Cloud Computing in Healthcare using Dynamic Cloudlets for Energy-Aware Consumption
Mobile cloud computing (MCC) has increasingly been adopted in healthcare. The use of mobiles devices by healthcare professionals (HCPs) has transformed clinical practice. Increasing use of mobile devices has led to the growth in the development of medical software applications for these platforms. There are different applications which help HCPs with many important tasks. Mobile cloud computing has helped HCPsin better decision making and improve patient care.MCC enable users to acquire the benefits of cloud computing services to meet the healthcare demands. However, the restrictions posed by network bandwidth and mobile device capacity has brought challenges with respect to energy consumption and latency delay. In this paper we propose dynamic energy consumption mobile cloud computing model (DEMCCM) which addresses energy consumption by healthcare mobile devices by using dynamic cloudlets.
