International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC) Volume 5, Issue 4

Book Description

The International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC) focuses on theories, systems, methods, algorithms, and applications in healthcare, biomedicine, telemedicine, and medical communications. This journal acts as an interface between e-health and communication technologies and their contribution to medical fields. IJEHMC publishes high quality application papers, survey and tutorial papers, case studies, and short research notes reflecting global e-health technologies and medical communications contributing to the state-of-art advances in the fields.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • Personalized Monitors for Real-Time Detection of Physiological States
  • Detection of Faulty Measurements in WBANs using Gaussian Mixture Model and Ant Colony
  • Extending Lifetime of Biomedical Wireless Sensor Networks using Energy-Aware Routing and Relay Nodes
  • Low Power Listening in BAN: Experimental Characterisation
  • Radiation Aware Efficient Sensor Deployment and Optimal Routing in Dynamic Three-Dimensional WBAN Topology
  • A Testing and Certification Methodology for an Open Ambient-Assisted Living Ecosystem
  • The Role of Perceived Usefulness and Attitude on Electronic Health Record Acceptance
