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: 2.849

Deadline 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

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.

List of Topics:

Research papers related to practical and theoretical issues and
problems are invited.

The List of Topics may include (but are not limited to):

Situation/Context-Aware Technology and Service in the internet of
healthcare things.
Situation Information Filtering and Aggregation in the internet of
healthcare things.
Integration of Bandwidth Mediation Points and internet of healthcare things.
Design, Development and Implementation of smart healthcare services in
the Internet of healthcare things.
Privacy, Security, and Social Issues related to smart healthcare
services in the Internet of healthcare things.
Trust and Value Creation through New Generation smart healthcare
services in the Internet of healthcare things

Smart healthcare Readiness (Technology, Service) in the internet of
healthcare things
Case Studies and Experience Reports of smart healthcare services in
the Internet of healthcare things

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering
and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to
go to the submission form. 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. International Journal of Environmental
Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open
access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
