Technological innovations in the field of disease prevention and maintenance of patient health have enabled assessment to be done using a monitoring system. Heart rate is a very important health parameter that is directly related to the human cardiovascular system. The main objective of this project is to develop a heart rate monitoring system for coronary heart disease patients via IoT. IoT-based heart rate monitoring consists of an ECG and a temperature sensor integrated with the Arduino IDE. The developed module is connected to an Arduino which is responsible for calculating beats per minute and body temperature. The Arduino then shares the serial data to the Blynk platform so that the data can be used by physicians or patient caregivers. The study involved thirty normal subjects who contributed to testing the usability, design, and operation of a heart rate monitoring system. To obtain the accuracy of the calculation, readings are formulated using HR Reserved or Karvonen Formula. The result achieved with this approach is the reduction of errors from the readings and the accuracy of the sensors with simultaneous data acquisition applied to the two sensors. During this research, evaluations performed on heart rate monitoring systems for coronary heart disease via IoT were observed based on sample experiments. The results showed that the cardiac data was successfully transferred via the Wi-Fi module. It is a major help for patients who need a heart rate monitoring system because the data can be accessed faster anywhere, at any time using the android application system with notifications.
