Accessible, Smart, and Integrated Healthcare Systems for Elderly and Disabled People
We are witnessing increasing numbers of elderly and disabled persons worldwide, most of them live at home or are mobile. These Persons desire accessible, flexible, and integrated healthcare, to get the treatment and support they need in an integrated manner at any place wherever they are. Following the rapid innovations in healthcare & information technology that advanced rapidly during the last decades, there are a lot of research on provision of integrated healthcare for everybody. Wide range of technologies are enabling the implementation of new services toward integrated healthcare, where diagnosis and treatment are being tailored to individual patients. Using massive data sets, Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, machine learning, and high-performance computing, health analytics and informatics are, indeed, enabling optimized ways of disease diagnostic, identification, and prediction as well as smart ways of care delivery.The STS (Accessible, Smart, and Integrated Healthcare Systems for Elderly and Disabled People) invites contributions from researchers and practitioners focusing on design, development, testing and application of information technologies to healthcare sector, pervasive, mobile, and ubiquitous healthcare systems, pandemic research, accessibility, usability and user experience of medical apps & devices, human behaviour, integrated healthcare approaches, patient empowerment systems, eHealth data standards and interoperability (e.g. HL7/FHIR), medical device and clinical investigation regulatory frameworks, as well as privacy and security.
