Pervasive Health

“Call for Papers

Pervasive healthcare is an emerging research discipline, focusing on
the development and application of pervasive and ubiquitous computing
technology for healthcare and wellness. Pervasive healthcare seeks to
respond to a variety of pressures on healthcare systems, including
the increased incidence of life-style related and chronic diseases,
emerging consumerism in healthcare, need for empowering patients and
relatives for self-care and management of their health, and need to
provide seamless access for health care services, independent of time
and place.

Pervasive healthcare may be defined from two perspectives. First, it
is the development and application of pervasive computing (or
ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence) technologies for
healthcare, health and wellness management. Second, it seeks to make
healthcare available to anyone, anytime, and anywhere by removing
locational, time and other restraints while increasing both the
coverage and quality of healthcare.

The Pervasive Healthcare conference aims to gather together
technology experts, practitioners, industry and national authorities
contributing towards the development and application of
human-centered pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology for
healthcare and wellness. ”
