With the aid of IoT (Internet of Things) powered wearable sensors, it is possible to measure the pulse, blood pressure, and other body functions by the physicians in real-time. The study highlighted that use of wearable tracker eventually leads to improved health for patients through improved medical service engagement. Survey-based approach was implemented to collect primary data from 131 respondents using wearable devices. The statistics were evaluated using partial least squares-structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) approach with smartPLS 3.0 software. The results revealed that information pervasiveness has no major effect on collaborative decision making, However, Patient-Provider interaction are found to be positively impacting collaborative decision-making. Key outcome came out to be an important finding as collaborative decisions did not exert significant impact on service engagement.
