About this Research Topic
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 Research Topic (fully aligned with the specialty section coverage) 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.
We 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.
