Over the past few decades, the world has faced the huge demographic change in the aging population, which makes significant challenges in healthcare systems. The increasing older adult population along with the current health workforce shortage creates a struggling situation for current facilities and personnel to meet the demand. To tackle this situation, cloud computing is a fast-growing area in digital healthcare and it allows to settle up a modern distributed system environment, capable of scaling to tens of thousands of self healing multitenant nodes for healthcare applications. In addition, cloud native architecture is recently getting focused as an ideal structure for multi-node based healthcare monitoring system due to its high scalability, low latency, and rapid and stable maintainability. In this study, we proposed a cloud native-based rapid, robust, and productive digital healthcare platform which allows to manage and care for a large number of patient groups. To validate our platform, we simulated our Cloud Nativebased Healthcare Monitoring Platform (CN-HMP) with real-time setup and evaluated the performance in terms of request response time, data packets delivery, and end-to-end latency. We found it showing less than 0.1 ms response time in at least 92.5% of total requests up to 3K requests, and no data packet loss along with more than 28% of total data packets with no latency and only ≈ 0.6% of those with maximum latency (3 ms) in 24-hour observation. Clinical Relevance- This study and relevant experiment demonstrate the suitability of the CN-HMP to support providers and nurses for elderly patients healthcare with regular monitoring in older adult facilities.
