This special issue of the journal Future Internet seeks papers about the subject of Future e-Health. Traditional views of e-Health have focussed on the basic infrastructure of IT and fairly simple goals of electronic documentation and communication. The equivocable benefits of this type of IT-focussed approach to e-Health as measured by actual health outcomes are testament that this is not the end-goal of e-Health. Future e-Health will deliver direct measurable benefit to patients and will focus on prevention and cure rather than just management of health conditions.
We are looking for high-quality and original papers that cover any aspect of the real future of e-Health. Papers are invited on any subject examining how e-Health will support medical diagnosis, treatment and care that is socially networked, personalised, mobile, capable of being autonomous, and protocol and decision-support based.Prof. Dr. David Glance
