    Call for Papers: Health Engineering and Informatics Driven by the Industry4.0 for Aging Society

    In the era of Industry4.0, deep convergence of automation technologies, biomedical engineering, and health informatics is reshaping the research landscape towards the rapid development of Health Engineering, an emerging interdisciplinary field for the predictive, preventive, precise and personalized medicine. This has offered an unpresented opportunity for solving the challenges caused by the aging of population.

    This special issue will focus on the cross disciplinary approaches, solutions, and initiatives for aging population enabled by the convergence of automation technologies, biomedical engineering and health informatics. The application scenarios can cover single or multiple scenarios of health engineering such as primary care, preventive care, predictive technologies, hospitalization, home care, and occupational health.

  • Towards Unobtrusive Patient Handling Activity Recognition for Reducing Injury Risk among Caregivers

    Towards Unobtrusive Patient Handling Activity Recognition for Reducing Injury Risk among Caregivers

    Nurses regularly perform patient handling activities. These activities with awkward postures expose healthcare providers to a high risk of overexertion injury. The recognition of patient handling activities is the first step to timely detect the injury development then reduce injury risk for caregivers. The current practice on workplace activity recognition is based on human observational approach, which is neither accurate nor projectable to a large population. In this paper, we aim at addressing these challenges.

    Special Issue on Nutrition Informatics: from Food Monitoring to Dietary Management

    The recent advances in smartphone technologies, wearable sensors, computer vision and machine learning will bring the applications of nutrition informatics closer to the individuals and enable them to make better decisions regarding their daily nutrition. In this special issue, five papers were accepted for publication.

  • Special Issue: IEEE BHI 2016

    THE IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) is a special topic conference of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS). BHI2016 was co-located with the Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas, NV, USA, in February 24th-27th, 2016. The main theme of BHI2016 was “Integrative Informatics for Precision and Preventive Medicine.” Advancing health informatics has been identified as a grand challenge for engineering in the 21st century by the National Academy of Engineering. Maintaining and improving human health will require integrative and novel informatics solutions to better translate discovery into clinics, re-engineer care practices, and integrate big data of various health networks.

    BHI2016 provided a unique forum to showcase enabling technologies of computing, devices, imaging, sensors, and systems that optimize the acquisition, transmission, processing, storage, retrieval, visualization and analysis. In addition, it shared how integrative informatics solutions can be used in novel clinical applications to improve human health, and how the deployment of integrated bioinformatics, m-Health, e-Health, and tele-Health with enterprise IT can enable precision and preventive medicine.
