Healthcare is very important factor in every body's life and Information technology is playing an important role in providing better health with number of advances. Internet of things (IoT) is an emerging technology. Due to its popularity in technology and internet world, IoT is rising in every field of life and so in health sector. Health is something in which its focus is more concentrated due to its hypnotic features. But it's still not implemented for the broad scope of Hospitals, and especially in Pakistan it's not being used for any purpose in health sector. So we need to define and provide IoT based hospital management information system (HMIS). In this paper we have presented IoT based architectural framework with context awareness for hospital management systems. We have used Context awareness as middleware above network layer to overcome the problem of data management. Moreover we did survey to investigate the decision to adopt the IoT based system in Pakistani Hospitals. Survey was questionnaire based. The accumulated results indicate that participants want to adopt this system and most of the population agreed that IoT based HMIS would provide better monitoring, communication and early diagnosis.
