Description

Smart mobile systems such as microsystems, smart textiles, smart implants, sensor-controlled medical devices, together with related body, local and wide-area networks, are part of the next-generation of health services, and have become important enablers for telemedicine and ubiquitous pervasive health. The multilateral benefits of pHealth technologies offer enormous potential for the improvement of medical quality, for the management of healthcare costs, and perhaps most importantly for improving patient experience.

This book presents the proceedings of pHealth2024, the 20th conference in the pHealth series, held in Rende, Italy from 27 – 28 May 2024. The conference series brings together expertise from medical, technological, political, administrative, and social domains, and even from philosophy and linguistics to share and discuss the latest developments in wearable or implantable micro and nano technologies for personalized medicine. The book includes 1 keynote paper, 24 full papers, 8 poster papers and 2 panels from a total of 111 authors from around the world. All submissions were carefully and critically reviewed by at least two independent experts from a country other than the author’s home country, and additionally by at least one member of the Scientific Program Committee, a rigorous selective process guaranteeing the high scientific level of the accepted and published papers.

Offering a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in personalized medicine, the book will be of interest to researchers and practitioners alike, as well as to all those working in the planning and delivery of healthcare services.
