Intelligent solutions in E-Health and Medical Communications Services
Increasing and aging populations with more chronic illnesses are straining health services in both developed and developing countries. E-health services may improve access to quality health information and improve self-management and thereby help alleviate the burden on health services. In addition, e-health can improve the quality of health services by increasing shared decision-making and by empowering patients.
E-health can be defined as the use of information and communication technology for the enablement or improvement of health care. A rapid technological development with increasing Internet access around the world and the pervasiveness of smartphones makes e-health relevant to all. E-health has expanded from web-based services to health apps, online video services, and social media, and new services and technologies are constantly being presented.
We welcome papers that address e-health services, especially from medical, psychological, and societal perspectives. The description of e-health services and their use, studies of why e-health services are used, the various outcomes of using such services, and how e-health services impact traditional health services are examples of topics that are within the scope of this Special Issue.
