4th International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare - "Transforming healthcare through innovations in mobile and wireless technologies"

November 3–5, 2014 | Athens, Greece

International Workshop on "Advances in Personalized Healthcare Services, Wearable Mobile Monitoring, and Social Media Pervasive Technologies"

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 healthcare solutions emphasize on the need to empower citizens to manage their own health and disease and include smart medical sensors, remote eHealth 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, enable personalization of care improving the productivity of healthcare provisioning and improve utilization of healthcare enabling the management of diseases outside institutions as well as encouraging citizens to remain healthy.

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, enhanced monitoring and self-management of disease and health
  • Wearable, outdoor and home based applications
  • Wireless, mobile and wearable devices for pervasive healthcare
  • Mobile applications for health, wellbeing disease management and disease prevention
  • 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
  • Technologies for the management and support of chronic diseases and the ageing population
  • Innovative communication and mobile technologies to support data collection and access, sharing, search and reasoning
  • Social media pervasive technologies for healthcare
