Internet of Things (IoT) is the emerging technology, that holds huge number of internet enabled devices and allows to share the data globally. IoT technology provides effective healthcare service by constant monitoring and reporting the chronic conditions of patients. IoT is highly greeted by healthcare sectors. IoT devices are smart in nature but constrained by energy, because most of the IoT applications uses battery operated smart devices. Hence energy is considered as valuable resource in energy constrained IoT environment. In this chapter energy efficient network architecture is proposed for IoT health care applications. Proposed network architecture describes the suitable combination of two different techniques such as, routing technique and node placement technique. In routing technique energy level of the nodes are monitored, to transmit the data in energy efficient path. In node placement technique, data traffic is balanced by varying the density of the nodes. This chapter describes the major factors that affect energy efficiency and it elaborates the suitable techniques to improve energy efficiency in IoT network.
