Sophisticated Healthcare services have been around for decades in most developed countries. These services, while mainly relying on human intervention in moderate as well as extreme circumstances, consume a significant portion of health care budget. The healthcare workers are also overloaded as of present, due to increasing number of reported health related cases. To assist in the present situation, recent developments in technology can play an important role. The technology advancements introduce new and efficient means to revolutionize the existing healthcare infrastructure. With the use of modern technologies, incorporation of smart sensors (mobile phone sensors and wearable technologies), machine learning, classification and modelling techniques, the vital conditions of patient’s health can be evaluated without investing excessive money and manpower.
Topics: • Energy management; • Energy scavenging technologies; • Fault tolerance; • Gateways and inter-working; • Localization; • Information processing and aggregation; • Internet of things; • Machine based analysis, optimization and diagnosis of medical conditions
