The purpose of this work is to implement a system based on IoT which allows to prevent possible errors or failures in the traceability of the medicines conservation in the pharmacy area in a fourth level hospital. This is achieved through the supervision and control of the medical device that preserves the temperature and humidity of the medications allowing them to maintain their physical, chemical, microbiological, therapeutic and toxicological properties recommended by the manufacturer and current regulations.
The implemented system was based on a centralized IoT architecture, which refers to a network that follows MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) and HTTPs (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) protocols. These protocols allowed connecting objects via the internet to transmit information for the purpose of intelligent communication between objects and the central information system.
The final implementation of the monitoring system allowed continuous recording of the temperature and humidity variables by establishing dynamic alarms in order to help identify and warn the responsible personnel about the unwanted behavior of the refrigeration equipment. It was possible to optimize the daily record of temperature and humidity.
