Advanced Technological Solutions for E-Health and Dementia Patient Monitoring

Book Description

Mental health is a growing field, but one still limited by a lack of prior research and challenged by increased demand for new solutions and treatments. Mobile and web-based technologies have the potential to fill some of the gaps. Advanced Technological Solutions for E-Health and Dementia Patient Monitoring provides comprehensive coverage of issues in patient health and support from the perspectives of doctors, nurses, patients, and caregivers. With its focus on challenges and opportunities, as well as future research in the field, this book is a vital reference for researchers, scholars, advanced students, software developers, managers, and stakeholders working at the forefront of e-health systems.
