Pervasive healthcare refers to the set of technologies designed to seamlessly integrate health education, interventions, and monitoring technology into our everyday lives, regardless of space and time. This approach can increase both the coverage and quality of care. Pervasive Computing for Hospital, Chronic, and Preventive Care discusses close to 150 projects from the academic and commercial domains to present a detailed overview of the state of the art in pervasive healthcare research.

It portrays a human-centered vision driven by a healthcare model devoted to the design and implementation of pervasive computing in support of: hospital care, to provide clinicians with access to relevant information from anywhere within the hospital through a variety of heterogeneous devices using context-aware information systems, note-taking applications, and hospital collaborative applications; chronic care, to support chronic care management and aging in place through solutions supporting real-time monitoring, step-by-step guidance, assisted navigation, and social connectedness; and preventive care, to support physical and psychological well-being using capture and access applications, persuasive technologies, and social health. This monograph closes by discussing and outlining some of the open challenges and new trends for future research in pervasive healthcare.
