The advances of the 4th Industrial Revolution based on real-world data analytics, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), applied in the healthcare sector, have the potential to revolutionize the provision of healthcare. The digital transformation of health services (Health 4.0) will be based on digital diagnostics and therapeutics (DTx), smart wearables, clinical decision support systems (CDSS), and computer-aided diagnostics (CAD). On the other hand, for the challenges of clinical evidence and cost effectiveness, user acceptance and satisfaction, privacy and ethical considerations, and new organization models of smart, digital health services need to be addressed. This Special Issue welcomes contributions of studies focused on these advantages and challenges of Smart, digital health on various technological platforms and covering all aspects of care. We are interested in studies and reviews focused on the validation or evaluation of smart, digital health services, rather than reports of technological breakthroughs.
