Abstract

Purpose

COVID-19 was indeed a global epidemic that revolutionized the way of life, especially health-care services. The way health care will be delivered will undergo a dramatic change in the future. The aim is to analyse the increasing usage of health care systems along with digital technology and IoT especially during pandemic.

Design Methodology Approach

This research paper deals with users’ perception and their recommendation status of IoT-based smart health-care monitoring devices based on their perception, experience and level of importance to enhance the quality of life. An effective artificial neural networking (ANN)-based predictive model is designed to classify the user’s perception of usage of IoT-based smart health-care monitoring wearables based on their experience and knowledge.

Findings

The model developed has 96.7% accuracy. Among the various predictors chosen as inputs for the model, the findings indicate that self-comfort and trusted data from the device are of high priority. The present study focused only on some common factors derived from previous studies.

Research Limitations Implications

Although the performance of the proposed system was noticed to be good, the size of the sample is also limited to a few responses. Implications for future research and practices are discussed.

Originality Value

This is a novel study that aims to develop an ANN model on analyzing the user’s perception of IoT-based smart health-care wearables with the effect of COVID-19 pandemic. This paper elaborates on the ongoing efforts to restart the health-care services for survivability in the new normal situations.

Abstract

Purpose

In response to the growing interest in Internet of Things (IoT) technology and its profound implications for businesses and individuals, this bibliometric study focuses on a critical yet understudied aspect, i.e. cybersecurity. As IoT adoption grows, so do concerns regarding user privacy and data security. This study aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the current research in this vital area, shedding light on research trends, gaps and emerging themes.

Design/methodology/approach

The study conducted a bibliometric analysis and systematic review of literature spanning over two decades (2013–2023). Bibliometric analysis is conducted using Biblioshiny which is R-software-based advanced analytical tool. Further, VOSviewer is used to conduct network analysis. The study highlights the evolving landscape of IoT cybersecurity, emphasizing interdisciplinary intersections and the ethical dimensions of IoT technologies.

Findings

The study uncovers crucial concerns related to IoT adoption, emphasizing the urgent need for comprehensive cybersecurity protocols. It identifies emerging themes such as artificial intelligence and blockchain integration, indicating a shift toward interdisciplinary solutions. Furthermore, the research highlights ethical gaps in current IoT discussions, emphasizing the importance of responsible innovation.

Research limitations/implications

Businesses can bolster their cybersecurity strategies, policymakers can craft informed regulations and researchers are encouraged to explore IoT’s ethical dimensions.

Originality/value

This study pioneers a nuanced analysis of IoT cybersecurity, filling a crucial gap in the existing business and management literature. By synthesizing a decade of scholarly work, it provides foundational insights for researchers, businesses and policymakers. The research not only informs academic discourse but also offers practical guidance for enhancing IoT security measures and fostering ethical innovation.
