Abstract- The paper discusses the emergence of Smart technologies of ZigBee, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) , Wireless Senor Networks (NSN) ,Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud Computing and Cloud of Internet of Things (CIoT) in terms of providing competitive advantage and improved service quality for Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) in Smart hospitals. A 5- stage integrated model is proposed which indicates the potential to provide real time healthcare informatics in terms of patient monitoring, tracking, and asset management. The visualisation layer linked to knowledge layer of the model can be used to provide Decision Support Systems (DSS) in real time. The system can also be linked to digital imagery and used to provide additional security such as ‘lock downs’ and automatic video streaming across the hospital complex in terms of monitoring and tracking facilities particularly in dealing with vulnerable patients and/or maternity wards applications etc.

Keywords- Smart technologies, ZigBee, RFID, IoT, CIoT, Decision Support Systems
