We are pleased to announce the JTEHM Special Issue on Healthcare Innovations and Point-of-Care Technologies for Precision Medicine. Accepted papers will be published in May/June, 2016 online in the IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine, an open access journal that is indexed in PubMed and IEEE Xplore.
We invite researchers, clinicians and innovators to submit full papers with multimedia illustrations for consideration of publication in the JTEHM special issue. Candidate papers should be in the areas of healthcare innovation, point-of-care technologies, mobile health and personalized, preventive and precision medicine. It is expected that papers submitted for consideration of publication in the JTEHM special issue will emphasize translational engineering and demonstrate a clear path toward potential clinical or public-health application.
The call for papers is open to all researchers, clinicians and innovators but submitted papers should be within the general scope of JTEHM.
Papers and talks presented at the NIH-IEEE 2015 Strategic Conference on Healthcare Innovations and Point-of-Care Technologies for Precision Medicine, November 9-10, 2015, NIAID, Bethesda are invited to submit full papers for consideration of publication in the JTEHM special issue.
