Book Description

This book provides an introduction into the field of digital medicine, its wide spectrum of current clinical applications, and the future practice of medicine. With "digital health" and "digital medicine" at its core, it focuses on the combination of therapeutics with modern hard- and software solutions, including artificial intelligence and advanced diagnostic technologies such as augmented imaging and ingestible or wearable (nano)sensors, to provide best patient care. In the four parts of this book, experts in the field have authored use cases and guiding principles on the visualization of patient data analytics and clinical decision support tools, including robotic-guided interventions, as well as nursing research along with palliative and inpatient care. The book also provides examples of "digital medicine" from almost all clinical disciplines together with technical and e-learning solutions.
