Grid Technologies for E-Health

Book Description

Grid computing has emerged as an important new field, distinguished from conventional distributed computing by its focus on large-scale resource sharing and innovative applications as well as an establishment for the creation of e-health networks. Grid Technologies for E-Health: Applications for Telemedicine Services and Delivery examines innovations to further improve medical management using grid computing. A defining collection of field advancements, this publication discusses the significance of automation and IT resources in healthcare technology previously infeasible due to computing and data-integration constraints.
