One of the primary topics at the center of discussion, and very often debate, between industry professionals, government officials, and the general public is the current healthcare system and the potential for an overhaul of its processes and services. Many organizations concerned for the long-term care of patients wish to see new strategies, practices, and organizational tools developed to optimize healthcare systems all over the world. One of the central engines of the current shift toward reorientation of healthcare services is virtual and mobile healthcare. This book explores the trends, challenges, and issues related to the emergence of mobile and virtual healthcare. It also examines how mobile technologies can best be used for the benefit of both doctors and their patients. Topics include smart healthcare, electronic health records, and m-health. For medical professionals, healthcare administrators, doctors, nurses, practitioners, and researchers in all areas of medicine.
