Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We have recently seen rapid development of healthcare technologies, along with the extensive adoption of the Internet, mobile technologies, data analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare. These advancements have resulted in highly multi-disciplinary research in digital, mobile, and smart health, and have also led the move in the direction of more personalized care. Sustainability simultaneously has the ability to meet our present needs without compromising future generations meeting their own needs (Brundtland Commission 1987), and it covers the following three aspects: environmental, social, and economic. Furthermore, the healthcare industry has consumed a tremendous amount of energy and water, and has produced a considerable amount of waste. Thus, it is necessary for the healthcare industry to be more responsible by adopting sustainable practices in order to efficiently utilize its resources and minimize environmental impacts.

This Special Issue aims to cover recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) for healthcare with a sustainability perspective in mind, from both academic researchers and industry developers. Any type of article aligned with the journal (original research, case study, technical report, short communication, and reviews) is welcome for this Special Issue. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Health informatics
  • Artificial intelligence in healthcare
  • Personalized healthcare
  • Incorporating sustainable practices in healthcare
  • Sustainable healthcare services and applications
  • Electronic and mobile health
  • Clinical decision support systems
  • IoT and big data in healthcare
  • Machine learning and deep learning in healthcare
  • Descriptive, diagnostic, predictive analytics in healthcare
  • Data security and privacy in healthcare
  • Machine learning to understand human behavior and well-being
  • New algorithms for medical and healthcare data analytics
  • Predictive analysis in personalized healthcare
