Special Issue Information
Digital health and telemedicine are main applications of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in healthcare and are playing an increasingly important role for health systems. These technologies are considered as strategic objectives of innovation, growth and employment plans. A cultural commitment resulting in the widespread use of these technologies in daily practice is important for enlarging their applications in health care, such as telehealth and digital telemedicine.
In recent years, there has been growing interest in the development of personalized and precision medicine approaches in the prevention and treatment of several pathologies with the purpose to offer patients “the right treatment, to the right patient, at the right time.” Digital health and telemedicine, if properly used, may offer advantages for both patients and health professionals in the delivery of medical services, where distance is a basic factor. Thanks to these technologies, all medical care experts can use ICT for the exchange of adequate information for treatment, diagnosis and avoidance of illness and wounds, exploration and assessment and for the proceeding with the instruction of medical care suppliers with the purpose of strengthening individuals’ health and their networks.
Personalized medicine via telemedicine can offer personal medications or treatment that can be suggested over video or phone conversations with a pill dispenser at hand. Family members or friends (from different locations) can participate in these conversations and understand expert suggestions for improving the health literacy of the entire family.
The proposed Special Issue collects the most recent insights into basic and clinical research on this topic, opening new perspectives towards modern approaches in personalized and precision medicine primarily for the advantage of people that for any reasons may have difficulties in accessing high quality medical assistance.
