Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the increasing availability of sensor technologies and the growing importance of data-driven healthcare solutions, research in this area has gained significant attention in recent years. The proliferation of wearable devices, Internet of things (IoT) sensors, biosensors, and other advanced sensing technologies, alongside efforts in standardized health data exchange (e.g., HL7 FHIR and EEHRxF), has enabled the continuous monitoring of various physiological parameters and lifestyle behaviors. This abundance of data holds immense potential for revolutionizing healthcare delivery by providing clinicians with timely insights into patient health status, facilitating health promotion, early disease detection, and empowering individuals to become active actors in the management of their health and wellbeing.

This Special Issue aims to explore the latest advancements, challenges, and opportunities in sensor and data integration, analysis, and exchange, while addressing application cases in areas such as chronic disease prevention and management, support of ageing populations, healthcare access and affordability, and healthy lifestyle management. Of particular interest are research endeavors delving into the integration of mobile and wearable sensor data with electronic health records and making the most of the utilization of artificial intelligence techniques. This integration aims to establish an interoperable ecosystem that adds value for citizens, patients, caregivers, and medical staff, facilitating continuous behavioral and physiological monitoring both at home, at healthcare facilities, and within communities.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome.
