Smart Health Handbook

We are currently in the process of compiling a comprehensive guide that delves into the latest advancements, innovations, and future outlook in the realm of Smart Health. This will be published, in 2025, as a book entitled “Smart Health Handbook.”. It will provide a comprehensive overview of Smart Health as the new developing paradigm of technology facilitated health and well-being. It will cover all the major areas of Smart Health, both the fundamental areas which enable these systems as well as the more specific applications, the challenges and the latest innovations.

Your contribution could take the form of a research paper, case study, or a survey, providing valuable insights into the intersection of technology and healthcare. The goal is to create a resource that not only highlights current trends but also serves as a practical guide for professionals and researchers alike.

The book will be published by IOS Press in the Studies in Health Technology and Informatics books series. You would need to prepare your article using either the MsWord or LaTeX template available at: The expected length of each chapter is 15-25 pages (in the official format provided above).

There is no specific deadline, however we are expecting to publish this book in 2025, as soon as we gathered the material we consider necessary.

The list of topics we are aiming to cover are listed further down.  As chapters in specific topics are accepted additional chapters coming later on for that area will not be considered.

There is no cost associated with publishing an accepted chapter as part of this Handbook and authors of accepted chapters will be also given free online access to the full Handbook when published.
