Internet of Things (IoT) becomes vibrant research field to satisfy the requirements of current trend in healthcare informatics.Time critical applications like patient monitoring in Critical Care Unit (CCU) and remote medication system are necessary to have minimum average end-to-end delay in communication in addition to reduced power consumption.Patient monitoring is a process of acquiring body parameters of a patient present at a remote location. This paper proposed the design, implementation and performance assessment of an enhanced Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) which makes the patients being monitored by a central system and allowed the patients to move freely. This system was simulated in Cooja emulator environment and the results proved the energy efficiency of the system by comparing existing methods and improved implementation attempted more domestically.
