Cross-sectoral interaction and cooperation in the communication of nutritional health risks represents a strategic research area among national governments and international health authorities. The key research question this book addresses is whether and how different industrial sectors interact with each other in the communication and industrial utilisation of health research findings. Through the introduction and exploration of large-scale industry news and digital media resources, this book systematically analyses a range of digital news genres and identifies new and growing trends of inter-sectoral interaction around the communication of nutritional health in the Chinese language at both international and national levels. This book argues that cross-sectoral interaction can be explored to identify areas that require policy intervention to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of current health communication and promotion. Inter-sectoral interaction can also provide incentives to develop new social programmes and business models to innovate and transform traditional industrial sectors.
This open access volume focuses on the development of a P5 eHealth, or better, a methodological resource for developing the health technologies of the future, based on patients' personal characteristics and needs as the fundamental guidelines for design. It provides practical guidelines and evidence based examples on how to design, implement, use and elevate new technologies for healthcare to support the management of incurable, chronic conditions. The volume further discusses the criticalities of eHealth, why it is difficult to employ eHealth from an organizational point of view or why patients do not always accept the technology, and how eHealth interventions can be improved in the future. By dealing with the state-of-the-art in eHealth technologies, this volume is of great interest to researchers in the field of physical and mental healthcare, psychologists, stakeholders and policymakers as well as technology developers working in the healthcare sector.
With the increasing availability of omics data and mounting evidence of the usefulness of computational approaches to tackle multi-level data problems in bioinformatics and biomedical research in this post-genomics era, computational biology has been playing an increasingly important role in paving the way as basis for patient-centric healthcare.Two such areas are: (i) implementing AI algorithms supported by biomedical data would deliver significant benefits/improvements towards the goals of precision medicine (ii) blockchain technology will enable medical doctors to securely and privately build personal healthcare records, and identify the right therapeutic treatments and predict the progression of the diseases.A follow-up in the publication of our book Computation Methods with Applications in Bioinformatics Analysis (2017), topics in this volume include: clinical bioinformatics, omics-based data analysis, Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain, big data analytics, drug discovery, RNA-seq analysis, tensor decomposition and Boolean network.
Neutrosophic Set in Medical Image Analysis gives an understanding of the concepts of NS, along with knowledge on how to gather, interpret, analyze and handle medical images using NS methods. It presents the latest cutting-edge research that gives insight into neutrosophic set's novel techniques, strategies and challenges, showing how it can be used in biomedical diagnoses systems. The neutrosophic set (NS), which is a generalization of fuzzy set, offers the prospect of overcoming the restrictions of fuzzy-based approaches to medical image analysis.
This third edition presents and dissects a wide variety of HIT failures so that the reader can understand in each case what went wrong and why and how to avoid such problems, without focusing on the involvement of specific people, organizations, or vendors. The lessons may be applied to future and existing projects, or used to understand why a previous project failed. The reader also learns how common causes of failure affect different kinds of HIT projects and with different results. Cases are organized by the type of focus (hospital care, ambulatory care, and community). Each case provides analysis by an author who was involved in the project plus the insight of an HIT expert. This book presents a model to discuss HIT failures in a safe and protected manner, providing an opportunity to focus on the lessons offered by a failed initiative as opposed to worrying about potential retribution for exposing a project as having failed. Access expert insight into key obstacles that must be overcome to leverage IT and transform healthcare. Each de-identified case study includes an analysis by a group of industry experts along with a counter analysis. Cases include a list of key words and are categorized by project (e.g. CPOE, business intelligence). Each case study concludes with a lesson learned section. Thought provoking commentary chapters add additional context to the challenges faced during HIT projects, from social and organizational to legal and contractual.
The first edition of Medical Bioinformatics and Biochemistry (Diabormatics) explains how medical biochemistry and bioinformatics could be used as a tool for analyzing the research data related to disease diagnosis and treatment. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary approach that includes concepts of biotechnology, microbiology, molecular biology, medicine and forensic science. This book is based on the recent development in the research dynamics of medical bioinformatics, biochemistry and progress in these fields. The book provides reference material for students of medical and life sciences. The development in genomic sequencing and in silico biology has provided the data needed to accomplish comparisons of derived nucleotide and protein sequences. The results of analysis may be used to formulate and test hypotheses about biochemical function. This first edition provides readers with a practical guide covering the full scope of concepts in medical bioinformatics and biochemistry related to diabetes. The basic purpose of this book is for students of medical and life sciences to understand the research methods of biochemistry and bioinformatics. This includes storing, receiving, and analyzing data from databases using various in silico tools. This book is a useful source of knowledge for MBBS, B.Sc, M.Sc / M.D. / M.S. and Ph.D level students looking for an accessible introduction to the subject.
