Scope

Personalized healthcare emphasizes on the use of information about an individual/patient to select or optimize patient's preventative, therapeutic care and wellbeing. Modern personalized healthcare solutions include smart medical sensors, remote monitoring, smart-phone enabled data aggregation, medical awareness and analysis, and context-aware assistive living technologies. Modern mobile healthcare systems, supported by information and communication technologies, provide solutions for improving illness prevention, facilitating chronic disease management, empowering patients, and enabling personalization of care improving the productivity of healthcare provisioning. In this context we invite researchers, physicians, computer scientists and engineers to present their experience and research work.

Topics covered (but not limited to):

  • Mobile and wireless technologies for healthcare delivery and enhanced monitoring Wearable, outdoor and home based applications
  • Wireless, mobile and wearable devices for pervasive healthcare
  • Patient monitoring in diverse environments (hospitals, nursing, assisted living) Healthcare telemetry and telemedicine, remote diagnosis and patient management Wireless access in ubiquitous systems for healthcare professionals
  • Service-oriented middleware architecture for medical device connectivity in personal health monitoring applications
  • Social media pervasive technologies for healthcare.

Organizers:

  • Emmanouil Spanakis (Computational Medicine Laboratory, Institute of Computer Science, FORTH)
