Descripción
HEALTHCARE challenges, including rising healthcare costs, aging populations, and emerging disease threats rank among the most serious concerns in the world. Recent global focus on healthcare issues has stimulated research and development of innovative technologies that may address the unsustainability of current healthcare provision models. Several healthcare organizations are seeking new techniques to deliver quality healthcare in a timely, cost effective and efficient manner. Rapid advances in wireless communications [1], mobile computing [2], and sensing technologies [3], [4] are opening new opportunities in healthcare [5]. The aim is to optimally utilize the capabilities of diverse wireless technologies and effectively manage the complexity of wireless and mobile networks for healthcare applications, toward advancing prevention, medical diagnosis, treatment, and patient care [6]. Current and emerging developments in wireless communications integrated with advances in pervasive and wearable technologies have the potential to transform healthcare delivery by substantially improving healthcare processes while providing a unified communication framework for staff members.With an increasing deployment of mobile and wireless networks, the role of wireless infrastructure in healthcare applications is expected to become significantly more prominent in the years to come.
