Connected Health is a dynamic and fluid area of digital health and largely encompasses a socio-technical model for healthcare delivery and management targeted to the development of efficient and effective interventions for the benefit of the citizen. Our intention is to make active and critical contributions to science discourses.
Recent advances in information and communication technologies prescribe an emerging paradigm in the delivery of advanced healthcare services named connected health. Connected Health is a dynamic and fluid area of digital health and largely encompasses a socio-technical model for healthcare delivery and management targeted to the development of efficient and effective interventions for the benefit of the citizen. The scope of this specialty section is to publish original papers describing recent advances in connected health systems, platforms and solutions. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to: sensing and Internet of Things in healthcare systems, personalized and well-being systems, early diagnostics, clinical diagnostics and disease management, electronic health records and patient summaries and exchange formats and interoperability, integrated care, security and data protection. Manuscripts may cover the aforementioned technologies, including their integration to the development of citizen-centric personalized eHealth, mHealth, pHealth and uHealth, as well as telemedicine systems. This specialty section will publish the latest advances in the field of connected health systems and technologies, hoping to further enable, drive and accelerate the development, translation and application of advanced healthcare delivery systems into clinical practice towards improved disease management and treatment, enabling precision and preventive healthcare services at reduced cost.

Connected Health welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, Field Grand Challenge, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Policy Brief, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Connected Health, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Connected Health will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Digital Health.
