The design and implementation of Multi Agent System (MAS) has gained more attention over the last 10 years due to the advance of artificial intelligence, wireless sensor network and microelectronic devices for the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT has ceased to be a novelty, becoming a reality in people's daily lives, since wearable devices and smartphones have become a daily basis tool for a large part of the population. The level of resolution and detection of problems have become a bottleneck for such technologies, which the human error is not more admissible. Since heterogeneity and autonomy are desirable characteristics in IoT systems, especially when such systems are aimed at monitoring the health of their user, MAS is highly required. This research provides a systematic review on the use of MAS in biomedical engineering, focusing on interactions in healthcare environments, architecture and inter-agent communication.
