- We can order this
Pervasive healthcare is the conceptual system of providing healthcare to anyone, at anytime, and anywhere by removing restraints of time and location while increasing both the coverage and the quality of healthcare. Pervasive Healthcare Computing is at the forefront of this research, and presents the ways in which mobile and wireless technologies can be used to implement the vision of pervasive healthcare.
This vision includes prevention, healthcare maintenance and checkups; short-term monitoring (home healthcare), long-term monitoring (nursing home), and personalized healthcare monitoring; and incidence detection and management, emergency intervention, transportation and treatment. The pervasive healthcare applications include intelligent emergency management system, pervasive healthcare data access, and ubiquitous mobile telemedicine.
Pervasive Healthcare Computing includes the treatment of several new wireless technologies and the ways in which they will implement the vision of pervasive healthcare.

From the reviews:
"Improving the technology involved in building healthcare systems remains a critical challenge in providing healthcare ... . Varshney carefully delineates in this book the need for improving the technology associated with providing healthcare. ... Overall, this is a very well-written book. Varshney has acquired a large amount of information to explain the topics discussed, and presents it with a reasonable level of detail." (Varadraj Gurupur, ACM Computing Reviews, October, 2009)
