Currently, healthcare in disaster management context faces a number of challenges mostly due to the lack of availability of reliable data from diverse sources required to be accessible by appropriate authorities. Therefore, the main objective of this study is the introduction of a framework based on the integration of three technologies, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and big data to solve this issue in all disaster phases and provide precise and effective healthcare. This framework supports healthcare managers by enabling data sharing among them and assists them in performing analytical calculations to discover meaningful, logical and accurate trend(s) required for strategic planning and better preparedness in the face of disasters. Also, the outcome of the framework may help decision makers to identify and predict the health consequences of the disasters for any specific geographical location in any country based on its geographical properties and disaster background.
