Edge-of-Things in Personalized Healthcare Support Systems (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Edge-of-Things in Personalized Healthcare Support Systems discusses and explores state-of-the-art technology developments in storage, sharing healthcare records of individuals in a secure manner that is globally distributed to incorporate best health care practices. The book provides a collection of research results that cover expertise in healthcare professionals, sharing of records over the cloud, access controls, rights of the shared document, privacy of the document, and edge computing techniques to identify the cause(s) of disease(s). The book advances personal healthcare, medical diagnosis, and treatment by applying IoT, cloud, and edge computing technologies in association with effective data analytics.

As medical records need to be shared with only a select few, new technologies must address clinician expertise and access to medical records in all media formats while also addressing privacy, security and access policies.
