The healthcare landscape is evolving rapidly, driven by advances in technology and a growing demand for more efficient, patient-focused medical solutions. Aging populations and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular problems, and respiratory conditions are straining healthcare systems.1 In response, the "Internet of Medical Things" (IoMT) has emerged, connecting an expanding array of devices and sensors to gather real-time data that can help revolutionize healthcare.

The IoMT tackles healthcare challenges by enhancing safety, security, remote monitoring, patient self-care, and personalized therapies. Connectivity is key, making device and patient data security paramount. Vital wireless communication technologies comprise Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE), radio-frequency identification (RFID), and near-field communications (NFC), and each contribute to a secure ecosystem of smart medical devices and medications.
