SI:ISCCRPM 2022 : SENSORS Special Issue on Intelligent Systems for Clinical Care and Remote Patient Monitoring
Call For Papers
The year 2020 was definitely like no other. COVID-19 shut down the world, and its spread and resulting impact led to a global crisis of unprecedented reach and proportion. This virus has impacted all our lives and forced us to adapt—especially when it comes to access to healthcare services.
Recent innovations, such as the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare, but also other important technologies, have resulted in better communication and collaboration between medical professionals, improved virtual patient care, and generated the diffusion of a multitude of medical devices that are saving lives every day.
These tools will see an even more massive boost in 2021.
For these reasons, this Special Issue focuses attention on new technologies, tools, and methodologies for the development of new intelligent systems for clinical care and remote patient monitoring. Among them, we can cite micro/nano/cyberphysical systems; AI and machine learning techniques; early pathology detection technologies; e-health, mHealth, telemedicine, and digital solutions; and augmented reality for remote healthcare treatments.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
Fast, cost-effective, and easily deployable sampling, screening, diagnostic, and prognostic systems, including new methods for screening, using for example AI, ML, or other advanced solutions;
Low-cost sensors, smart wearable devices, and robotics/AI for telemedicine, telerehabilitation, telepresence, and continuous remote monitoring of patient parameters;
Innovative data-driven services, algorithms, and tools for data analysis, data management, and data fusion from various relevant privately held and/or publicly available sources;
Services for privacy, data protection, and anonymity in the use of mobile healthcare and prevention applications.
All these will help doctors and citizens in the management of both COVID and, especially, non-COVID-19-related pathologies.
The main topics include, but are not limited to:
• smart sensors
• artificial intelligence
• remote monitoring
• data analysis
• data fusion
• data protection
• screening applications
• healthcare prevention
