It is internationally recognized that future healthcare systems will be supported by pervasive healthcare systems in order to target the upcoming societal health challenges. Pervasive Health and Technology (PHT) Journal is a cross-disciplinary journal focusing on issues related to development, delivery and management of pervasive healthcare and the impact of technology within future healthcare systems. The journal aims to become an information source and to create a community of shared interests between health professionals, technologists, patients and other professionals related to pervasive healthcare.

The journal will present and discuss issues pertaining to personal electronic health assistants, health crowdsourcing, data mining and knowledge management, needs of patients, disease prevention and awareness, electronic and mobile health platforms including design, implementation and evaluation of supporting hardware and software in ambulant and hospital workflows, needs of physicians, nurses and other healthcare staff.

PHT seeks novel contributions in the areas including, but not limited to:

  • - Pervasive Healthcare Management: data quality, standards and interoperability, security and privacy
  • - Understanding healthcare actors: patients, physicians, nurses, carers and other health stakeholders
  • - Knowledge representation and reasoning: interpreting health data from daily life, user modeling and personalization
  • - Application of pervasive healthcare technologies and out of lab case studies: health/wellbeing promotion and disease prevention, telemedicine, independent living
  • - Public health approaches and large-scale health initiatives: health crowdsourcing, disease prevention
  • - Economic impact of pervasive healthcare systems when targeting societal health challenges: business cases, cost analysis, impact on society
