Scope:

Technological developments in computing and networking have largely made the delivery of health services possible from a distance. The key requirements for current and emerging healthcare systems are ubiquitous access to services, delivery of personalized services, broadly understood security, openness to new networking technologies and techniques for the purpose of flexible management of the quality of service (QoS) and delivery of high quality of experience (QoE). The fulfillment of the above requirements will lead to the utilization of Future Internet architectures and concepts (e.g., Internet of Things, Internet of Services, Internet of Media) as well as new system design paradigms (e.g., communication enabled applications, service oriented architecture, user centricity, content and context awareness) to design and implement advanced e-Health systems.

Service science is an emerging interdisciplinary approach to design, implement and evaluate complex service systems. It brings together science, ICT technologies and business to provide an added value to domain-specific applications of service-based systems. Service science is often defined as application of scientific, engineering, and management disciplines that integrate elements of computer science, operations research, industrial engineering, business strategy, management sciences, and social and legal sciences, in order to encourage innovation in how organizations create value for customers and shareholders that could not be achieved through such disciplines working in isolation. The application of service science in the e-Health area seems to be a natural approach to build platforms, systems and applications which meet current and future demands of the healthcare domain.
