PervasiveHealth 2008 Tampere, Finland

PervasiveHealth 2008: 2nd International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare 2008 | Tampere, Finland 30 Jan - 1 Feb 2008

After the successful first year of the conference, the Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the Second International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare. Pervasive healthcare is an emerging research discipline, focusing on the development and application of pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology for healthcare and wellness. Pervasive healthcare seeks to respond to pressures towards healthcare system, arising from a number of factors, including the
  1. increased incidence of life-style related and chronic diseases,
  2. emerging consumerism in healthcare,
  3. need for empowering patients and relatives for self-care and management of their health, and
  4. need to provide seamless access for health care services, independent of time and place.
Helge: Mediracer fits into this slot. We can take neurophysilogical diagnostics to occupational health field applications and to local hospitals. The Mediracer Telemedicine provides specialist diagnosis over Internet.

We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:
  • Wearable, ambient and home based health and wellness measurement and monitoring technologies
  • Mobile and wireless technologies for healthcare information storage, transmission, processing, and feedback, including devices, systems and applications
  • Sensor networks for pervasive healthcare
  • Information management, processing and analysis in pervasive healthcare
  • Networking support for pervasive healthcare (location tracking, routing, scalable architectures, dependability, and quality of access)
  • Citizen portals and electronic citizen-managed health records
  • Security, privacy and trust in pervasive healthcare
  • Standards and interoperability in pervasive healthcare
  • Pervasive healthcare technologies and applications for citizen for chronic disease management, health risk management, health promotion, and disease prevention
  • Pervasive healthcare for health professionals
  • Technologies to support ambient assisted living
  • User needs, usability and acceptability issues
  • Business cases and cost issues
  • Clinical applications, validation and evaluation studies
Helge: We move the tools to the field and provide specialist diagnostics to cut down the waiting time to ENMG studies.
