Issues related to providing healthcare are emerging as a worldwide priority.  As healthcare needs soar, providers are increasingly looking to technology to provide help for managing care.   This technology is critical, for example, in systems for diagnosing and treating illness, systems for data management, eHealth, telehealthcare, and in patient management of their own health.  These issues are challenging, particularly as they relate to ensuring equal access to services and information by disabled users and older adults.

Studies of issues related to the accessibility and usability of electronic health records
Studies related to the use of eHealth or telehealthcare technologies with disabled or older users
Studies related to the impact of IT on quality of life with respect to healthcare
Studies related to systems to support clinicians in working with disabled patients
Submissions should follow the journalís suggested writing format ( and should be submitted through Manuscript Central , indicating that the paper is intended for the Special Issue.
