Smart mobile systems, eHealth and telemedicine, as well as social media and gamification, have all become important enablers for the provision of the next generation of health services.

This book presents the proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Wearable, Micro and Nano Technologies for Personalised Health (pHealth 2016), held in Heraklion, Crete, in May 2016. pHealth 2016 brings together experts from medical, technological, political, administrative, legal and social domains with the aim of further emphasizing the integration of biology and medical data, systems and information using mobile technologies. The book includes two keynotes and two specially invited talks as well as 21 oral and 10 poster presentations selected by a rigorous review process (with a rejection rate of more than 30%) from the more than 45 submissions to the conference. The book is divided into two sections. The first covers mHealth, devices, applications and biosensors and the second deals with smart personal health systems, deep learning, interoperability and precision medicine. Subjects covered include the development of micro-, nano-, bio- and smart-systems with an emphasis on personalized health, virtual care, precision medicine, big bio data management and analytics, as well as security, privacy and safety issues.

This book will be of interest to all those whose work involves the provision of healthcare, both today and into the future.
