Latest innovations in Internet of Things (IoT) technologies as well as the new paradigms in Artificial Intelligence systems are opening up opportunities to create smart computing infrastructures for the Healthcare Facility Management. However, the current scenario of hospital buildings maintenance management is strongly characterized by slow, redundant, and not integrated processes, which lead to loss of money, resources, and time. On the other hand, lack of data and information in as-built digital models considerably limits the potential of Building Information Modelling in Facility Maintenance Management. Consequently, optimization of data collection process and management is required. In this light, this paper presents a review of embedding AI (Artificial Intelligence) in BIM-IoT integration for the process of healthcare Facility Maintenance Management (FMM) in order to conquer the current challenges. The first challenge in front of integrating IoT– BIM, is the lack of information; the second challenge is BIM’s sematic information that has not been able to display indoor conditions’ elements which should be reconsidered; and the third challenge is the data size which is stored in systems as well as the eligibility of individuals to apply the related data. Additionally, some emerging trends in IoT are reviewed such as the combination of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in order to exploit their advantages and complement their limitations, which enable new promising IoT applications.
