Telemedicine Technologies: Information Technologies in Medicine and Telehealth focuses on how medical information can be reliably transmitted through wireless communication networks. It explains how they can be optimized to carry medical information in various situations by utilizing readily available traditional wireless local area network (WLAN) and broadband wireless access (BWA) systems.

In addition, the authors discuss consumer healthcare technology, which is becoming more popular as reduction in manufacturing cost of electronics products makes healthcare products more affordable to the general public. Finally, the book explores topics such as communication networks and services, patient monitoring, information processing, system deployment, data security and privacy, information technology in alternative medicine, multimedia and health informatics, and caring for the community.

Key Features:

  • Focuses on the transmission of medical information over wireless communication networks, and addresses topics such as communication networks and services, patient monitoring, information processing, system deployment, data security and privacy, and many others
  • Provides an in-depth introduction to the various factors that need to be considered for supporting healthcare services with information technology
  • Covers advancements in topics such as RFID in healthcare
  • Discusses medical signal processing as well as ECG and signal processing techniques

This book will be of interest to advanced students and professors in biomedical engineering, bioinformatics, and information engineering. Medical and IT professionals involved in specifying new facilities, healthcare practitioners in telemedicine, researchers in wireless communications and information technology, and network administrators will also find this book insightful.
