As we live in the digital world, people can be provided with more effective treatment methods that allow them to live longer in their home and to live there better. People can be provided with better home care and preventive health care. People can easily carry portable sensors and intelligent devices in their bodies and wrists that relay their vital information to hospital systems in real time, from which healthcare staff can track human vitality even in real time. Although the digital world offers good opportunities to improve healthcare systems and make disease analyses more effective, we must look deeper about that issue. Devices and systems may not work well together. Almost every manufacturer has their own technical solutions and they only work in certain environments. There is a great need for unified concepts and for IT platform solutions in healthcare systems. The technology currently in use is very varied. Standards are developing now days, but they are not yet ready. In addition, the lack of technical and functional requirements for telemedical communications systems and equipment, as well as the requirements for providing secure data transmission in remote medical care. In the news we can see and hear often that there are a lot of medical devices that have damaged the patient's health around the world. And then there are a lot of vulnerabilities and that means security risks, cyber risks and the risks of reliability of data. These risks are associated with IoT devices and sensors, and in the field of data transfer. This document describes telemedicine solutions for the future of society. Includes a brief introduction of hospital equipment in a hospital environment and a patient's home. The main overall is the communication arrangements, consisting of the bio-signal formation of the patient's sensor and the flow of bio-signals to the hospital information systems for analysis and monitoring. This study examines cyber threats and attacks against e-health systems and what that means for patients` health. This study also examines the authenticity, traceability, authentication and protection of privacy. ...
