Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for our upcoming special issue on "Revolutionizing Healthcare: Exploring the Latest Advances in Digital Health Technology".

Digital health technology has been rapidly advancing, and it has the potential to revolutionize healthcare delivery, improve patient outcomes, and reduce costs. This special issue aims to provide a platform for researchers, academics, and practitioners to share their latest research, best practices, and insights on the use of digital health technology in healthcare.

We welcome original research articles, review papers, case studies, and perspectives on the following topics (but not limited to):

  • Telemedicine and telehealth
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning in healthcare
  • Big data analytics in healthcare
  • Internet of Things (IoT) in healthcare
  • Wearable technology and mobile health applications
  • Blockchain technology in healthcare
  • Virtual and augmented reality in healthcare
  • Electronic health records and health information systems
  • Patient engagement and digital health interventions

We encourage submissions that demonstrate interdisciplinary and collaborative research, and that address the challenges, opportunities, and ethical considerations associated with the use of digital health technology in healthcare.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Big Data and Cognitive Computing is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Obesity is increasingly becoming a prevalent health concern among adolescents, leading to significant risks like cardiometabolic diseases (CMDs). The early discovery and diagnosis of CMD is essential for better outcomes. This study aims to build a reliable artificial intelligence model that can predict CMD using various machine learning techniques. Support vector machines (SVMs), K-Nearest neighbor (KNN), Logistic Regression (LR), Random Forest (RF), and Gradient Boosting are five robust classifiers that are compared in this study. A novel “risk level” feature, derived through fuzzy logic applied to the Conicity Index, as a novel feature, which was previously unused, is introduced to enhance the interpretability and discriminatory properties of the proposed models. As the Conicity Index scores indicate CMD risk, two separate models are developed to address each gender individually. The performance of the proposed models is assessed using two datasets obtained from 295 records of undergraduate students in Saudi Arabia. The dataset comprises 121 male and 174 female students with diverse risk levels. Notably, Logistic Regression emerges as the top performer among males, achieving an accuracy score of 91%, while Gradient Boosting lags with a score of 72%. Among females, both Support Vector Machine and Logistic Regression lead with an accuracy score of 87%, while Random Forest performs least optimally with a score of 80%. Full article

With the ubiquitous use of digital technologies and the consequent data deluge, official statistics faces new challenges and opportunities. In this context, strengthening official statistics through effective data governance will be crucial to ensure reliability, quality, and access to data. This paper presents a comprehensive framework for digital data governance for official statistics, addressing key components, such as data collection and management, processing and analysis, data sharing and dissemination, as well as privacy and ethical considerations. The framework integrates principles of data governance into digital statistical processes, enabling statistical organizations to navigate the complexities of the digital environment. Drawing on case studies and best practices, the paper highlights successful implementations of digital data governance in official statistics. The paper concludes by discussing future trends and directions, including emerging technologies and opportunities for advancing digital data governance. Full article
