One of the challenges encountered in the provision of healthcare is the inability of healthcare systems to adapt to or respond adequately to adverse events (pandemics or otherwise), especially in settings with limited resources. ICTs can be built into healthcare systems to detect and/or mitigate adverse events. The COVID-19 pandemic has showcased the opportunities that are brought forth by ICTs such as the adoption of online consultations by doctors and other innovative ways of providing healthcare despite public health regulations, travel restrictions, and fears tied to physical appointments. Beyond the COVID-19 era, there is a need to reimagine how ICTs could be adopted in healthcare to ensure resilience in the advent of any of these future adverse events. Building Resilient Healthcare Systems With ICTs highlights the various ways ICTs could assist in building resilience within healthcare systems and the various contexts in which resilience could be built within healthcare systems. It portrays practical implications of and value derived from building resilience in healthcare systems. Covering topics such as electronic health information systems, multimodal representation, and supply chain management, this book is an essential resource for healthcare executives, government officials, researchers, computer engineers, and academicians.
Advances in healthcare technologies have offered real-time guidance and technical assistance for diagnosis, monitoring, operation, and interventions. The development of artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things technology, and smart computing techniques are crucial in today’s healthcare environment as they provide frictionless and transparent financial transactions and improve the overall healthcare experience. This, in turn, has far-reaching effects on economic, psychological, educational, and organizational improvements in the way we work, teach, learn, and provide care. These advances must be studied further in order to ensure they are adapted and utilized appropriately. The Handbook of Research on Mathematical Modeling for Smart Healthcare Systems presents the latest research findings, ideas, innovations, developments, and applications in the field of modeling for healthcare systems.
