Series: Health Care in Transition

BISAC: MED000000

Smart health technologies continue to gain research interest across the globe in this digital era. Researchers are focusing on advancements in healthcare systems to make human life better. Also, such advancements help in early disease diagnosis and prevention of the worst diseases. Designing smart healthcare systems is possible only because of recent developments in artificial intelligence, machine learning and IoT technologies. Though mHealth refers to all mobile devices which can communicate data, mobile phones are presently the most popular platform for mHealth delivery. Ninety-four percent of the world population owns/uses a mobile phone, making mobile phones an optimal delivery platform for mHealth interventions. mHealth may catalyse the healthcare delivery model from a historical/episodic model into a tangible/patient-centric model. mHealth is being viewed progressively by many as an essential technology metaphor to achieve rich, vigorous patient engagement, ultimately achieving a patient-centric paradigm change.

This book will discuss diverse topics to explain the rapidly emerging and evolving mobile health and artificial perspective, the emergence of integrated platforms and hosted third-party tools, and the development of decentralized applications for various research domains. It presents various applications that are helpful for research scholars and scientists who are working toward identifying and pinpointing the potential of as well as the hindrances to mHealth. The wide variety in topics it presents offers readers multiple perspectives on a variety of disciplines.

The aim of this edited book is to publish the latest research advancements in the convergence of automation technology, artificial intelligence, biomedical engineering and health informatics. This will help readers to grasp the extensive point of view and the essence of recent advances in this field. This book solicits contributions which include theory, case studies and computing paradigms pertaining to healthcare applications. The prospective audience would be researchers, professionals, practitioners, and students from academia and industry who work in this field. We hope the chapters presented will inspire future research from both theoretical and practical viewpoints to spur further advances in the field.
