This Special Issue aims to collect advances in sensors in the healthcare environment and in the evaluation of all types of telemedicine and eHealth systems and applications. Both original research and review papers are welcome.
At present, the prevalence of broadband wireless access networks has made it possible for users to remain connected to the Internet in almost all places. This almost-ubiquitous connectivity available has created new possibilities for innovative eHealth applications and services. The ability of a network to meet the implicit and indicated connection needs of users is specified in terms of quality of service (QoS) and the general acceptability of an application or service, as subjectively perceived by the end user as quality of experience (QoE). It is important to monitor QoS in a telemedicine network of storage and cases retransmission, to establish QoS parameters in terms of wireless telemedicine for eHealth services, and to evaluate the quality of medical images and the performance metrics in the assignment of resources oriented to QoE for health monitoring. With the Internet of Things (IoT), the evaluation of corporal detection devices in networks is key. These devices store individuals’ health information in real time in addition to their related behavior, where privacy and security must be considered.
The MDPI journal Sensors is soliciting paper submissions, and aims to bring together researchers and application developers working on the intersection of IoT sensors in eHealth such as sensor design and development, distributed, cloud, internet, mobile, ambient, real-time, secure, and privacy-preserving computing related to eHealth. We also aim to explore the application of novel IoT computing results in eHealth.

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. Sensors 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 2400 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.
