Special Issue in IoT: The Leverage of Social Media and IoT
With the onset of the COVID-19 viral wave, strategies that shift care away from hospitals toward the home and community have gained momentum. Additionally, the guidelines to stay at home and work from home have led to increased awareness of new ways to manage care and interpersonal collaboration. As a result, we are witnessing a variety of apps and services covering areas from automated triage help via smart care chatbots to direct connection to care teams via services such as lightweight videoconferencing, remote monitoring systems, and medical alerts. All these new virtual care services along with the real time data streaming analysis are playing an increasing role in enabling virtual care, connected health, and supporting the interpersonal community of practice.
