The digital revolution has transformed the reality of what healthcare means today. Wearable technologies, automated clinical laboratories, sensors, genomics, and various other wireless devices have changed the way healthcare is delivered, setting the path for a digital health future that is increasingly drawing attention from both academia and industry. The key driver of this revolution will be the data. Medical data have become complex and analyses of these data have brought new discoveries and challenges, allowing us to develop new insights and expand our knowledge in the field. It is an exciting time to bring in new discussion topics and ideas on big data and digital health as data become a critical part of our day-to-day lives.
This Special Issue is intended to present discussions and any advances at the intersection of digital health and big data. We would like to invite you to submit articles addressing the digital health ecosystem and the extent to which new technologies can push the health industry forward. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
- Artificial intelligence in healthcare
- Digital health and the aging population
- Digital analytics for behavioral health
- Machine learning application for medical research
- Impact of digital health on processes in the industry
