Welcome Message

The objective of the IEEE International Conference on e-Health Networking, Application and Services (Healthcom2009) is to bring together interested parties around the world in the health care field from academia, research, government and industry to exchange ideas, report learning, and discuss innovation and emerging solutions addressing challenges in e-Health. Participants include clinicians, hospital administrators, IT professionals, researchers, educators, healthcare solutions vendors, and consultants. Healthcom2009 is also an important forum for discussions on e-Health projects sponsored by world bodies such as ITU, WHO and APEC, particularly Ubiquitous Healthcare Initiative for Ageing Societies. In addition to the technical papers to be selected by the International Technical Program Committee, the program will include keynote addresses by international experts on some of the burning topics in eHealth:
  • eHealth for Ageing
  • eHealth for Pandemics and Biosecurity
  • eHealth for Developing Countries
  • Global Developments in m-Health
The proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore and EI indexed. As in the previous years, best papers from Healthcom2009 will be published in major international refereed journals such as ISI-listed Telemedicine and e-Health Journal, Journal of Healthcare Engineering, and Journal of e-Health Technology and Application. Healthcom2009 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communication Society, IEEE NSW Section, IFMBE and AIMBE.
