    The E-Medicine, E-Health, M-Health, Telemedicine, and Telehealth Handbook provides extensive coverage of modern telecommunication in the medical industry, from sensors on and within the body to electronic medical records and beyond.

    Telemedicine and Electronic Medicine is the first volume of this handbook. Featuring chapters written by leading experts and researchers in their respective fields, this volume:

    • Describes the integration of—and interactions between—modern eMedicine, telemedicine, eHealth, and telehealth practices
    • Explains how medical information flows through wireless technologies and networks, emphasizing fast-deploying wireless body area networks
    • Presents the latest developments in sensors, devices, and implantables, from medical sensors for mobile communication devices to drug-delivery systems
    • Illustrates practical telemedicine applications in telecardiology, teleradiology, teledermatology, teleaudiology, teleoncology, acute care telemedicine, and more

    The E-Medicine, E-Health, M-Health, Telemedicine, and Telehealth Handbook bridges the gap between scientists, engineers, and medical professionals by creating synergy in the related fields of biomedical engineering, information and communication technology, business, and healthcare.
