Please email the guest editors a brief description of the article you plan to submit by 15 October 2014 Guest Editors: Aart van Halteren, Valerie Gay, and Maarten van Steen (

The way we deal with our health is undergoing a major transformation, not only because mobile Internet technology has made it possible to have continuous access to personal health information, but also because breaking the trend of ever-growing healthcare costs is increasingly necessary. Estimates indicate that more than 70 percent of the world population will have a smart phone by 2017. Connectivity, interoperability, sensing, and instant feedback through smartphones all provide new opportunities for gaining insights into our health behavior. Such insights are improving, and understanding what motivates people to make healthy changes throughout their lifetimes is becoming more important. Internet technology not only lets us continuously monitor an individual’s physiological and psychological state, but also allows for building up a lifelong record of physical, mental, and social health.

This special issue of IC aims to provide an international forum for reviewing and sharing recent advances in wireless, connected, and mobile health research as a multidisciplinary area spanning computer science and engineering, nursing, medicine, behavioral science, and public health. Research articles, case studies, effectiveness studies, and experience reports are invited in the following areas:

application domains, including continuous monitoring of physical, mental, and social health, mobile telemedicine, and quality of life for older adults;
network communications, including infrastructures and architectures, cloud technologies, and the health grid;
interoperability and standardization for continuous digital health;
security and privacy;
behavioral science, including measuring and predicting health behavior and motivational feedback strategies;
social media;
business models for continuous digital health; and
big data and knowledge management.
