Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, there has been a huge proliferation of solutions that store and process personal health data, inferring knowledge from mobile health apps to smart wearable sensors.

The incorporation of data obtained from several sources enables the application of artificial intelligence techniques for the analysis of these data and the search for patterns.

Sources of medical data in health services are causing important concerns, the main being privacy and legal issues when sharing and reporting health information from patients. However, an accurate diagnosis will depend on the quantity and quality of the information about a patient, as well as extensive medical knowledge.

On the other hand, health information systems must clearly incorporate the sharing of data from heterogeneous sources, enabling the creation of multidisciplinary work teams that work with them. In these teams, medical professionals share information and obtain recommendations from data scientists, computer programmers, mathematicians, and statisticians.

In this Special Issue, we are interested in incorporating the latest advances in the application of artificial intelligence to the world of health. The works that will have a place in this issue will be both those focused on the health systems themselves, as well as the techniques from artificial intelligence that are applied to health, such as deep learning, generative adversarial networks, digital twins, and others related solutions. Similarly, the techniques for incorporating health data, which address aspects such as quality, safety, interoperability, techniques to incorporate missing values, etc. are welcome for submission.

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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
