Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Wearable Micro and Nano Technologies for Personalized Health
Health technologies for personalized medicine have become important enablers for monitoring and treatment in both inpatient and outpatient care. The benefits of these technologies lead not only to improvements in medical services quality for all stakeholders, but also to new healthcare business models, promising a better containment of healthcare costs.
This book presents the proceedings of the 2013 pHealth Conference, held in Tallinn, Estonia, in June 2013. The pHealth conferences have established themselves as the leading international conference series on wearable or implantable micro and nanotechnologies for personalized medicine and health service provision. pHealth 2013 proceeds in bringing together a dynamic emerging professional community from Europe and beyond. The keynotes, invited speeches and oral presentations in this book address these wearable technologies, and also other topics such as health games, terminologies and ontologies, medical decision support, monitoring of environmental and living conditions, as well as social and ethical issues.
We are at the beginning of what promises to be revolutionary change in healthcare offering significant opportunities for both patients and healthcare providers. This book will therefore be of interest to the entire healthcare industry.
