    This book provides an examination of applications of soft computing techniques related to healthcare systems and can be used as a reference guide for assessing the roles of various techniques. Soft Computing Techniques in Connected Healthcare Systems presents soft computing techniques and applications used in healthcare systems, along with the latest advancements. The authors examine how connected healthcare is the essence of combining a practical operative procedure of interconnectedness of electronic health records, mHealth, clinical informatics, electronic data exchange, practice management solutions, and pharmacy management. The book focuses on different soft computing techniques, such as fuzzy logic, ANN, and GA, which will enhance services in connected health systems, such as remote diagnosis and monitoring, medication monitoring devices, identifying and treating the underlying causes of disorders and diseases, improved access to specialists, and lower healthcare costs. The chapters also examine descriptive, predictive, and social network techniques and discuss analytical tools and the important role they play in enhancing the services to connected healthcare systems. Finally, the authors address real-time challenges with real-world case studies to enhance the comprehension of topics. This book is intended for under graduate and graduate students, researchers, and practicing professionals in the field of connected healthcare. It provides an overview for beginners while also addressing professionals in the industry on the importance of soft computing approaches in connected healthcare systems.
