ECHAlliance member, The Digital Health & Care Institute is organising a Special Issue on “Global Advances in Telehealth Practice” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health

The Digital Health & Care Institute is organizing a Special Issue on “Global Advances in Telehealth Practice” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, DHI refers you to http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
 
The global telehealth market continues to experience double digit growth and this is expected to continue over the next decade. There is therefore a need for continuing study into the use of existing available technologies and their application as well as a look into the future. There is an increasing use of home and mobile technologies being used to monitor many aspects of people’s lives from pure health and assisted living applications through to devices and applications that support health and wellbeing. The ethical and trust considerations that an exponential increase in data generation and data sharing will bring need to be discussed and resolved sooner rather than later. The use of consumer devices rather than a reliance on formal “medical technology” creates great opportunities but with it come challenges.
 
This Special Issue is designed to stimulate researchers and all interested communities from around the world to share their research and test their hypotheses with a likeminded audience so that we can create a future that serves to benefit us all.
