A mobile health (mHealth) system is responsible to support and provision of healthcare services using mobile communication devices, such as mobile phones and tablet computers. Although mHealth system development for Internet of Things (IoT) environments is still in the early stage, the existing research shows the essential potential impact on the healthcare service industry. This chapter overviews important IoT use cases in healthcare focusing on the proposed IoT solutions for smart services provided by an mHealth system. The study discusses recent experience on development of smart space based mHealth systems. IoT-aware opportunities and properties of healthcare services are considered, including our vision on service intelligence in the mHealth case. Smart spaces based methods are described for mHealth system development, including multi-agent architectures, semantics-oriented information sharing, and operation with multisource heterogeneous data.
