A smart health city creates a healthy environment. Since the end of 2019, the coronavirus pandemic has increased the number of sick patients around the world, and many government services have been enacted to treat patients with distance therapy. Therefore, many countries are using smart health technology as one tool to address coronavirus. In this article, we present how cities can implement and manage smart health technology in response to the coronavirus. In addition, we present the challenges in implementing smart health technology as a tool for solving the coronavirus problem. We found that the Internet of Things is a concept to drive smart health programs, and governments and municipalities should develop innovative strategies for deploying emerging technologies in health information technology (health IT) to enhance the quality, accuracy, efficiency, and availability of health care while reducing costs. However, some of the challenges of smart health cities are that medical staff must change the work culture by using more technology, the cost of providing accessibility to emerging technologies in aspects of government investment, and equal opportunities to access technology.
