Internet of Things (IoT) is the backbone of telemedicine and its data security has become a significant concern that requires further attention. Therefore, this study was conducted with the aim of analyzing telemedicine systems, focusing on data security measures. Thirty peer-reviewed research studies published in 2018 were reviewed and compared according to certain parameters, viz., algorithms, IoT sensors, data encryption ability, communication mechanisms, mobile accessibility, protocols, software, and platforms. The results illustrate that transmitting sensitive medical data over the Internet has been identified as a major threat, and solutions such as ciphertext-policy attribute-based en..
