Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally. There are significant challenges in delivering better preventive and management strategies. In recent years, we have seen the world undergo a technological revolution. Today, almost half of the world's population is connected to the Internet and almost one-quarter own a smartphone. Further, the United Nations has set the goal of connecting all the world's inhabitants to affordable Internet by 2020. This will increase access to information, education and will empower many people to improve their living conditions and escape poverty. As a result, there is a rapidly expanding area of research and development that is transforming the way healthcare can be delivered. This provides new possibilities, and new challenges, for cardiovascular disease management, which often requires complex and multidimensional strategies for improving prevention and management.
In light of this, we are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue, "e-Health in Cardiovascular Medicine", which will be published in the international journal Medical Sciences. Medical Sciences is an international open access scientific journal, providing a platform for advances in basic, translational and clinical research. Citations are available in PubMed and full-text are archived in PubMed Central. The journal aims is to publish original research, review articles and short communications in order to increase understanding of the fundamental principles and fundamental questions in medicine and healthcare. The objectives of this Special Issue on "e-Health in Cardiovascular Medicine" are to publish and collect both clinical research, public health and other research contributions from original and high-quality research articles and encourage researchers to investigate topics in the field. The overall goal is to expand our understanding of digital health interventions and how they may transform the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease.
