  • Latest research on Pervasive and Mobile Sensing and Computing for Healthcare
  • Not only a state-of-the-art overview on pervasive sensing and pervasive computing as a tool for implementation of pervasive healthcare vision but also on the impact on society at medical, technological, social and economical level
  • Written by leading experts in the field

The pervasive healthcare system focus towards achieving two specific goals: the availability of eHealth applications and medical information anywhere and anytime and the invisibility of computing. Furthermore, pervasive health system encompasses new types of sensing and communication of health information as well as new type of interactions among health providers and people, among patients, among patients and researchers and patients and corporations.

This book aims at promoting the discussion on current trends in technologies and concepts that help integrate health monitoring and healthcare more seamlessly to our everyday lives, regardless of space and time, but also present cutting edge perspectives and visions to highlight future development. The book presents not only the state of the art technologies and solutions to tackle the critical challenges faced by the building and development of the pervasive health system but also potential impact on society at social, medical and technological level.
