Today multimedia services and technologies play an important role in providing and managing e-health services to anyone, anywhere and anytime seamlessly. These services and technologies facilitate doctors and other health care professionals to have immediate access to e-health information for efficient decision making as well as better treatment. Researchers are working in developing various multimedia tools, techniques and services to better support e-health initiatives. In particular, works in e-health record management, elderly health monitoring, real-time access of medical images and video are of great interest.
The objective of this special issue is to report high quality research on recent advances in various aspects of e-health, more specifically to the state-of-the-art approaches, methodologies and systems in the design, development, deployment and innovative use of multimedia services, tools and technologies for health care. We invite authors to submit their original papers and contributions addressing (but not limited to) the following topics:
* Serious Games for health
* Haptics for Surgical/medical Systems
* Adaptive exergames for health
* Multimedia Enhanced Learning , Training & Simulation for Health
* Sensor and RFID technologies for e-health
* E-prescribing, E-therapy
* Medication adherence
* Wearable health monitoring
* Health record management
