Call For Papers

With the development of networked technologies and services, “Connected Healthcare” is getting tremendous attention from industry, academia, governments, industry, and from the healthcare community. Enabling networked services and technology (e.g., cloud computing, fog computing, mobile health technology, mobile edge computing, and so on) can play a significant role in Connected healthcare systems by offering better insight of heterogeneous healthcare content to support affordable and quality patient care. While researchers have been making advances in the study of networked technologies and healthcare services individually, little attention has been given to making cost-effective and affordable for connected healthcare services. Connected healthcare has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of our society. However, many technical challenges related to networked technologies, communications and services need to be addressed before this potential can be realized. Some of these challenges include: How to develop rich and real-time multimedia services or tools for connected healthcare solutions? Where will the different next-generation technologies be used? How can networked computing and mobile health technologies assist with the right patient care at the right time and in the right place? How can rich networked multimedia computing facilitate healthcare data representation, storage, analysis and integration for effective smart healthcare solutions? How to protect the privacy of patient information shared on mobile devices while guaranteeing the security, trust, and interoperability of mobile health technology?

This Special Issue (SI) aims to report high-quality research on recent advances in various aspects of networked technologies in healthcare services, more specifically to the state-of-the-art approaches, methodologies, and systems in the design, development, deployment and innovative use of networked services, mobile-enabled devices, communications, tools and technologies for providing insights into connected healthcare service demands. Authors are solicited to submit complete, previously unpublished contributions in the following topics. Topics include, but are not limited to:

• Deep Learning based networked applications, techniques and testbeds for connected healthcare
• Smart diagnosis and predictive evaluation for mobile-enabled connected healthcare
• Medical image/video processing and visualization of connected systems for remote/mobile healthcare
• Innovative mobile-enabled networking services, systems, infrastructure and technique for connected healthcare based on multimodal sensors and smart objects
• Connected home healthcare for mobile-enabled fall detection of disables or elderly people
• Smart patient condition screening, visualization and monitoring in a complex networking environment in mobile-enabled patient portals
• Network tools, testbed and performance of connected patient care with mobile multimedia health technology
• Security, privacy and trust of connected patient-specific mobile healthcare records

Articles should be a tutorial in nature and written in a style comprehensible to readers outside the specialty of the article. Authors must follow IEEE Network Magazine's guidelines for preparation of the manuscript. Complete guidelines for prospective authors are found at All manuscripts to be considered for publication must be submitted by the deadline through Manuscript Central. Select the “November 2019: Network Technologies for Connected Healthcare” from the drop-down menu of Topic/Series titles.

It is important to note that IEEE Network Magazine strongly limits mathematical content and the number of figures and tables. Paper length (introduction through conclusions) should not exceed 4,500 words. All articles to be considered for publication must be submitted through the IEEE Manuscript Central by the deadline.
