Internet of Things and mobile technologies for eHealth

This keynote will focus on a new hot topic on e-health technologies considering recent advances on e-Health systems, including mobility environments and mobile technologies. Information and communication technologies have rapidly grown in the few last decades along with mobile Internet concept of anywhere and anytime connection. In this context, Mobile Health (m-Health) proposes to deliver healthcare services, overcoming geographical, temporal and even organizational barriers. Pervasive and m-Health services aim to respond several emerging problems in health services, including, the increasing number of chronic diseases related to lifestyle, high costs in existing national health services, the need to empower patients and families to self-care and manage their own healthcare, and the need to provide direct access to health services, regardless of time and place.
