Computer Systems for Healthcare and Medicine by Piotr Bilski (Editor); Francesca Guerriero (Editor)The development of modern civilization leads to us having to solve new problems which did not exist before. The contemporary world faces a great challenge of aging societies, where the increasing number of citizens requires constant medical attention. To ensure safety and wellbeing of elderly people, patients in hospitals and disabled persons, advanced technologies can be implemented. These include both sophisticated data acquisition systems and data processing algorithms, aiming at the constant and discreet monitoring of persons whilst raising alarm if immediate attention is required.Computer Systems for Healthcare and Medicine presents a novel look at the introduced problems, including proposed solutions in the form of automated data acquisition and processing systems, which were tested in various environments. Characteristic features include a wide range of sensors used to monitor the situation of the person, and accurate decision making algorithms, often based on the computational intelligence domain.Technical topics discussed in the book include application for the healthcare of the following:* Infrared sensors * MEMS * Ultra wideband radars* Deep learning * Decision trees * Artificial neural networks* Gabor filters* Decision support systems

Information Infrastructures Within European Health Care by Aanestad Margunn (Editor); Miria Grisot (Editor); Polyxeni Vassilakopoulou (Editor); Ole Hanseth (Editor)This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. The book aims to be a resource for those interested in planning and implementing large-scale information infrastructures for novel electronic services in health care. The focus of this book is on the pivotal role of the installed base (i.e. the already existing elements of an infrastructure) for ensuing infrastructural development. The book presents rich empirical cases on the design, development and implementation of core infrastructural components (e-prescription and public patient-oriented web platforms) in different national settings across Europe. Therefore, this is a book in which theoretical insights and practical experiences are tightly connected. Contributions have been sourced from a network of academics that have been working on the topic for years, and who have previously collaborated and shared a common understanding of the challenges entailed in expanding information infrastructures within healthcare. The book aims to become a reference for those seeking theoretical and empirical insights for conceptualizing and steering the evolution of information infrastructures in healthcare. The two types of systems (e-prescription and public patient-oriented web platforms) have been selected because they are widespread across Europe, because they invite comparisons, and because they are exemplary of two different types of aims. E-prescription initiatives are usually seen as opportunities to improve healthcare delivery by systematic and not dramatic change. Public patient-oriented web platforms are seen as opportunities to pursue wider and more radical innovation. This book targets researchers, practitioners and students who would benefit from a book providing a comprehensive view to contemporary approaches for the design and deployment of large-scale, inter-organizational systems within healthcare.
