Dear Colleagues,

A Special Issue "Smart Healthcare Services in Internet of Healthcare
Things" in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public
Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health
Care Sciences & Services".
Impact Factor: 2.468Deadline for manuscript submissions: *31 December 2020*.

Internet of Things are small autonomous apparatuses that incorporate
sensing abilities, computing power, and communication capabilities. The
recent advances in the embedded design of these autonomous apparatuses make
it clear that the near-future versions of theses apparatuses will be widely
available with low cost, and empowered with advanced processing and
wireless networking technologies, which in turn will enable the Internet of
Things to be commonly feasible for various applications including public
health and medical services. A healthcare IoT network contains dimensional
cooperative autonomous sensors to track biological conditions or symptoms
of patients, such as euthermia, blood pressure, heart rate, blood glucose,
brain activities, gesture or contaminants and to collaboratively transmit
their sensed data through a communication media to primary healthcare
service. The latest communication networks are bi-directional, which also
can facilitate the management of the sensing activity.

This recent phenomenon facilitates healthcare delivery using new technology
paradigms. Implementing the internet of healthcare things has induced the
existence of contemporary services in various healthcare fields such as
neurology, cardiology, endocrinology, urology, and another life-critical
emergency utility. Many preeminent healthcare institutions are expanding
their expenditure on innovative smart healthcare services, and modern
applications of the Internet of healthcare things (Intelligent/Autonomous
Healthcare Service). These new healthcare services demand new models to
acquire and handle sensory data from the various Internet of healthcare
things and efficient strategies for accurate analysis and governance of
such data.

Hence the main interest of this special issue is to present the recent
research work of researchers and practitioners who are conducting
investigation on the field of smart and intelligent healthcare services and
strategy to present the current research problems, issues, and advances in
such a field. The aim of this special issue is to offer insights for
discussions related to the considerable research challenges and
comprehensive achievements on these topics of interest.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be
peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the
journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special
issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short
communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract
(about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on
this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be
under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference
proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a
single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant
information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions
for Authors <> page.
