Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The eHealth technological ecosystems promote and strengthen the use of ICT in health development from applications in the field to global governance, with a very special attention to the development of data-driven healthcare and digital health services.

Persons with some form of disability are a very important target for these data-driven healthcare ecosystems, because around 15% of the world’s population suffer any kind of disability.

Sensors have a great potential to increase the potential of the healthcare systems, as was presented and tackled in the Special Issue on "Sensor Technologies for Caring People with Disabilities" of Sensors (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors/special_issues/Sensor_Caring_People_with_Disabilities). This Special Issue looks to extend the pursued goals of this previous collection to achieve a more general scope regarding eHealth.

Taking this into account, the contributions of this Special Issue should focus on (but not be limited to) the following topics:

How are data-driven healthcare ecosystems implemented?
Studies and best practices that evidence the impact of digitalizing services in the health sector;
Frameworks and infrastructures that allow eHealth ecosystem delivery;
Privacy, safety, and standardization issues regarding eHealth ecosystems;
Assisted living solutions;
Game-based or gamified solutions applied to eHealth.
