This study empirically examines the importance of m-IoT adoption on the information pervasiveness across the network and patient stakeholders and in turn investigating how efficiency of healthcare services and care process improvement got affected. Study outcomes based on 221 completed responses from the healthcare professionals concludes that, m-IoT adoption opens new opportunities and challenges with the process innovation in the healthcare services and increases the efficiency of services.
