Description

Pervasive healthcare is an emerging research discipline focusing on the development and application of pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology for healthcare and wellness. Pervasive healthcare seeks to respond to a variety of pressures on healthcare systems, including the increased incidence of lifestyle related and chronic diseases, emerging consumerism in healthcare, the need for empowering patients and relatives for self-care and health management, and the need to provide seamless access for health care services, independent of time and place.

Pervasive healthcare may be defined from two perspectives. First, it is the development and application of pervasive computing (or ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence) technologies for healthcare, health and wellness management. Second, it seeks to make healthcare available to anyone, anytime and anywhere by removing location, time and other restraints while increasing both the coverage and quality of healthcare.

Pervasive Health 2010 aims to gather technology experts, practitioners, industry and national authorities contributing towards the development and application of human-centered pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology for healthcare and wellness.
