IEEE Healthcom 2022 aims at bringing together interested parties (universities, research centers, industries and stakeholders) from around the world working in the healthcare field to exchange opinions, discuss brand-new ideas, developing innovative and emerging solutions, and establishing new collaborations.
Healthcare is one of the largest industries with 5-18% of GDPs spent on health and Care globally. The healthcare budgets of the vast majority of nations continue to outgrow their GDPs. Social, demographic, economic and technological factors are the drivers for ever faster changing healthcare models. While the demographic shifts in the populations display significant socio-economic challenges they trigger more and more opportunities for innovators in the areas of sensor technology, the Internet of Things, Robotics, e-health, m-Health, Cloud Computing and emerging technologies such as 5G, Big Data, SDNs, NFV, Precision and Personalized Medicine. However, the integration of innovative technology into society is associated with a lot of complexities. Social technological alignment and societal acceptance of technology requires sound solutions with regards to ethical, legal, social and security challenges.
The three-folded scope of IEEE HealthCom 2022 will be tackled by taking the lead in pushing eHealth state-of-the-art. First, IEEE HealthCom 2022 will discuss the latest advancements in the eHealth field by presenting innovative and efficient solutions. Second, the conference will illustrate practical aspects of eHealth solutions through experimental results and by analyzing the response to technology-assisted medical care and treatments. Third, IEEE HealthCom 2022 will offer further directions for research posing new problems and challenges in the eHealth field.
