IoT based remote health monitoring systems play an important role to provide a technological solution for health monitoring and reach essential medical services to the patients. However, a review of the existing literature reveals that the existing remote health monitoring systems rarely consider difficulty of interoperability among devices in the system. In this paper, we propose a Named Data Networking (NDN) based remote health monitoring system, which involves the functions of measuring and combining patient's health data, real-time named based data transmission between gateway and health center, data analysis at hospital side, and overall the realization of two-way communication between doctors and patients. The whole work is carried out from three aspects: simulation, hardware implementation, client platform building (App development). Simulation part focuses on the construction of the whole system in the virtual NDN network environment on the ndnSIM platform. The hardware part implements system construction and basic functions in reality. For the client platform, we build a mobile application, which achieves the functionality of online communication between doctors and patients.
