Internet of Things (IoT) emerges as disruptive innovation and development in the fields of drug delivery and biomedical sciences using on-target active transportation, sensors, wearable devices, real-time diagnostics, etc. Semiconducting fluorescence emitting material, quantum dots on integration with IoT displayed interesting results in healthcare sector especially in hospitals and pathological laboratories. Presently, the integrated system is used to improve productivity without the interference of human and offer cost-effective system. This integrated system can be used for detection of various diseases like epilepsy, cancer, diabetes, etc. and various biomedical applications like energy storage, lights, sensor technology, light filters, etc. The integrated technology is implemented into the field of medicine for simplifying the approaches in therapeutics and diagnostic applications. The collected and analyzed data are further useful for healthcare professionals to find patient-centric solutions. Artificial Intelligence-aided IoT emerges as a novel technology for transmitting and securing the health data. Despite some of the limitations like e-waste and risk of hacking, IoT-based QD system will be considered as a modern healthcare provider with life-saving products for enriching medical quality and real-time accessibility.
