Call For Papers

Computing Technique is one of the key technologies that is being currently used to perform medical diagnostics in the Healthcare domain, thanks to the abundance of medical data being generated and collected. Nowadays, medical data is available in many different forms like MRI images, CT Scan images, EHR data, Test reports, histopathological data, Doctor Patient conversation data, etc. This opens up huge opportunities for the application of computing techniques, to derive data driven models that can be of very high utility, in terms of providing effective treatment to patients. Moreover, Machine Learning algorithms can uncover hidden patterns and relationships present in medical datasets, which are too complex to uncover, if a data driven approach is not taken. With the help of computing systems, today, it is possible for researchers to predict an accurate medical diagnosis for new patients, using models built from previous patient data. Apart from automatic diagnostic tasks, computing techniques have also been applied in the process of drug discovery, by which a lot of time and money can be saved. Utilization of Genomic data using various computing techniques are other emerging area, which may in fact be the key to fulfilling the dream of personalized medications. Medical prognostics is another area in which Machine Learning has shown great promise recently, where automatic prognostic models are being built that can predict the progress of the disease, as well as can suggest the potential treatment paths to get ahead of the disease progression. Our book on “Health Informatics: A Computational Perspective in Healthcare” aims at attracting research works, to demonstrate the potential and the advancements of computing approaches to utilize healthcare centric and medical datasets.
