Special Issue: Intelligent Healthcare Systems
During the past two decades, innovations in medical systems have revolutionized the way in which healthcare services are provided. This paradigm shift has supported governmental agencies and other stakeholders in providing more efficient treatments at a better cost. Nonetheless, the challenge of making intelligent healthcare systems is still of the utmost importance. This special issue aims at providing a platform to researchers in sharing their knowledge and experience regarding novel and impactful designs for intelligent healthcare systems. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the field, we welcome original contributions from computer science and information technology researchers as well as health care practitioners or public health scientists.
Recommended topic areas include, but are not limited to:
Acquisition, management and visualization of health data
Clinical decision support systems
Healthcare communication networks and environments
Healthcare modeling and simulation
Intelligent health records
Management of workflow and capacity
Medical data mining
Ontologies in healthcare
Patient care, monitoring and diagnosis
Tele-health and tele-monitoring
Submitted papers must present original research, which is neither published anywhere else nor under any simultaneous consideration in any other place. A professional level of English is expected for all submissions. Previously published conference papers should be clearly identified by the authors, with a mention of the conference name and a reference to the original paper. Papers that extend conference contributions must include at least 50% new material, and the authors should explain how such papers have been extended.
Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers.
Final decisions on accepted papers will be approved by the journal editors.
