IEEE HealthCom 2015 aims at bringing together interested parties from around the world working in the healthcare field to exchange ideas, discuss innovative and emerging solutions, and develop collaborations. eHealth is defined as the cost-effective and secure use of information and communications technologies in support of health and the related fields, including health-care related services, surveillance, literature, education, knowledge and research, both at the local site and at a distance. It will make personalized medicine possible and affordable in the near future. The adoption of e-Health technologies in medical fields creates huge opportunities; however, a number of challenges still need to be addressed to build reliable, secure, and efficient networks or platforms with great flexibility.

Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their original contributions covering completed or ongoing work related to the e-Health area. The topics include but are not limited to:

Medical, Biomedical and Health Informatics
  • Electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic prescription
  • Data preprocessing, cleansing, management and mining
  • Data quality assessment and improvement
  • Medical imaging
  • Computer-aided detection, hypothesis generation and diagnosis
  • Evidence-based medicine
  • Evolutionary and longitudinal patient and disease models
  • Clinical workflow
  • Medication adherence and health monitoring
  • Smart health and big data

Devices
  • High-confidence medical devices
  • Integration of medical devices with e-Health
  • Medical device interoperability
  • Wearable devices
  • In/on/around-body sensors and actuators

Services and Applications
  • e-Health services/applications for physical and mental health; for example, in acute care, chronic care, mental health care, biomedical engineering, rehabilitation, prosthetics, elderly/nursing care, smart homes and hospitals, and rural/wilderness practice.
  • e-Health services/applications for sports and exercise; for example, in training prescription and feedback, concussion detection/monitoring, life-logging and fitness monitoring.
  • e-Health services/applications for public health; for example, disease prevention, pandemic preparedness, epidemiological interventions and smart cities.
  • e-Health services/applications for extreme environments; for example, in fire fighting, disaster response, evacuation assistance, medical triage, space travel/exploration, deep diving and deep sea exploration.
  • Quality of experience (QoE) with e-Health services/applications.
  • Security, privacy and trust for e-Health services/applications
  • Emerging cloud-based services/applications including health clouds/grids
