Call For Papers

Special Issue of Journal of Healthcare Engineering (Clarivate Analytics Science Citation Index Expanded, Impact Factor 0.925).

Scope

Information and communication technologies (ICT) bring a new dimension into the different areas of healthcare by using electronic media and new methodologies. Electronic supported health (eHealth) has the ability to bridge gaps and overcome barriers in a different way from traditional forms of healthcare. Telemedicine is the most attractive and visible application field. The advances in healthcare and ICT serve the populations (human beings, patients, and healthcare professionals) and the sustainability of healthcare systems. New health IT systems offer opportunities to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare services through innovative approaches in clinical service delivery, personal health, and public health, with wide impacts on the wellbeing of both individuals and populations. The use of telemedicine especially for consultation and monitoring has recently undergone rapid growth and proliferation, although the feasibility of many applications, policies, and data concerning the costs, effects, and effectiveness of eHealth and telemedicine are limited.

We invite researchers to contribute original research articles as well as review or methodological articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to promote use of ICT services or bridge gaps and overcome barriers.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

- eHealth systems (mHealth, sHealth, pHealth, and telemedicine/telehealth/telecare)
- Preventive, ambulatory, hospital, and rehabilitation care
- Local, regional, intersectoral, and national
- Identifications of persons/patients, devices, and products
- Images and laboratory

- Performance evaluation in clinical practice
- Security, privacy, and reliability issues
- Interoperability and/or standardization issues
- Development methodology
- Quality management
- eHealth services and applications (mHealth, sHealth, pHealth, and telemedicine/telehealth/telecare)
- Recent research and developments
- Evaluation of economic, social, and/or clinical benefits
- Solutions for provision of services
- Data-driven healthcare services
- Acceptability and accessibility
- Developing countries and low resource settings
- Policy analysis based research
- Quality management
- Clinical and public health
- Epidemiology and health services research
