Special Issue on Enabling Technologies for Next Generation Telehealthcare
------------------------------------------

Nowadays, all over the world, the number of Information and 
Communication Technology (ICT) investments in health and well-being is 
rapidly increasing. In this context, there is a growing interest about 
telehealthcare that allows the provisioning of various kinds of 
health-related services and applications over the Internet. The main 
benefits of telehealthcare are: it reduces the risk of infection because 
patients can make use of remote healthcare services directly in their 
homes without the need to physically move in clinical centers; it can 
optimize healthcare workflows; it pushes down clinical costs; it 
improves the quality of life of both patients and their families. 
Telehealthcare solutions are typically aimed at tele-nursing, 
tele-rehabilitation, tele-dialog, tele-monitoring, tele-analysis, 
tele-pharmacy, tele-trauma care, tele-psychiatry, tele-radiology, 
tele-pathology, tele-dermatology, tele-dentistry, tele-audiology, 
tele-ophthalmology, etc. In recent years the rapid advent and evolution 
of emerging ICT solutions (such as Internet of Things (IoT), 
Cloud/Edge/Fog computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, 
etc.) are revolutionizing the whole telehealthcare sector.

This special issue aims to attract contributions from both academic and 
industrial organizations focusing on the application of such an emerging 
ICT for addressing Telehealthcare issues.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
     •    Emerging architectures and technologies for telehealth;
     •    Computer aided clinical diagnosis and therapy;
     •    Networked applications for telehealth;
     •    Medical signal and data processing;
     •    Algorithms for decision support and therapy improvement;
     •    Artificial Intelligence applications for telehealth;
     •    Advanced security techniques for telehealth.
