IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Healthcare Information Technology for the Extreme and Remote Environments.
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Healthcare Information Technology for Extreme and Remote Environments (HITERE). Extreme and rural medicine means having to treat health issues in the most challenging and sometimes inhospitable environments. It can occur in places completely removed from all of the standard procedures, comforts, protocols, and technologies, or during a crisis such as floods, tsunamis, and earthquakes that result in power failures and computer inoperability.. Knowing how to deal with the unique challenges encountered saves lives and communities. Hospitals and clinicians are being challenged to do more with less, yet there are limited attempts to develop solutions and applications that work in such challenging environments. This Special Section in IEEE Access aims to provide researchers and practitioners a platform to present innovative solutions based on emerging technologies like IoT, blockchain, electronic data interchange (EDI) and wireless sensors networks. The main focus of this Special Section is to address the current research challenges by encouraging submissions related to the advanced Healthcare Information technologies.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
