Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wireless health is transforming health care by integrating wireless technologies into conventional medicine, including the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of illness. The list of tools for wirelessly monitoring and diagnosing disease is expanding. The ability to remotely manage drugs and health devices is increasing. With the aid of smart and intelligent systems, the knowledge of how genetics affects susceptibilities to disease is growing. These trends suggest that the society is approaching towards a revolution in health care. The role that wireless health plays is being further enhanced by the Internet of things (IoT). The IoT revolution is reshaping modern healthcare with promising technological, economic, and social prospects. IoT-based healthcare services are expected to further reduce costs, increase the quality of life, and enrich the user’s experience. Despite the enormous potentials and a decent amount of existing research, IoT-based healthcare comes with several difficulties in its path, including regulatory hurdles, privacy, and interoperability standards. The IoT still remains in its infancy in the healthcare field, and researchers across the world are therefore working hard to address the potential of the IoT in the healthcare field, with consideration of the various practical challenges. The purpose of this Special Issue is to present recent novel advances in enabling technologies for IoT-based wireless health.

Both theoretical and practical papers are solicited on the following related aspects: algorithms, system design, performance analysis, and experimental studies. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the keywords listed below.

  • Network architectures and platforms for IoT-based wireless health;
  • Applications and industrial trends in IoT-based wireless health;
  • Security and privacy features for IoT-based wireless health;
  • Policies and regulations for IoT-based wireless health;
  • Integration of big data and ambient intelligence with IoT-based wireless health;
  • Sensors and wearables for IoT-based wireless health;
  • Ontology and semantic knowledge for IoT-based wireless health;
  • Precision medicine and wireless health;
  • Machines learning and bioinformatics in wireless health;
  • Uses of smartphone in health care;
  • Technology convergence and standardization issues for IoT-based wireless health;
  • Energy-efficient protocols for IoT-based wireless health;
  • QoS Issues for IoT-based wireless health;
  • Cost Analysis for IoT-based wireless health; and
  • Business model for IoT-based wireless health.

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 papers will be 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 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 1400 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.
