Reviews and Testimonials

Applying recent advances from information and communication technologies (ICT) to improve the healthcare practice is increasingly gaining momentum in the last years. This requires highly multidisciplinary research, involving different fields of knowledge such as engineering, computer science, and medicine or other health related areas. In this context, the International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC) is well positioned in providing a forum for the timely dissemination of relevant research and development work that build bridges between different areas in ICT and their applications in healthcare and thus contribute in advancing the e-health field.

– Prof. Artur Ziviani, National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LNCC), Brazil

It was a great pleasure to witness the rapid development of the International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications under the outstanding leadership of Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Joel Rodrigues. The journal has been well received in the community with high-quality papers selected from rigid review process and handled by responsible Editors and Reviewers. I feel very thankful to be invited into this journey at the very beginning and would be glad to continue make efforts during the exciting campaign.

– Dr. Haohong Wang, Chair, MMTC of IEEE ComSoc, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Communications

International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC) is an interesting and innovated peer-reviewed research journal in the field of e-health and medical communications. It addresses useful and creative issues and concepts in the different interdisciplinary areas such as telemedicine, biomedicine, healthcare, etc. The review process is very adequate. IJEHMC provides a wide forum for the publication of research papers by part of professors, academicians, industry professionals, researchers and targeting students around the world. All published works in this journal show important research advances in e-health and medical communications.

– Prof. Isabel de la Torre-Díez, University of Valladolid, Spain

Medical communications is a rapidly developing research area. Its multidisciplinary nature brings a wide potential for innovation and break-through ideas. I am very pleased that International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications has been timely launched and publishes the most recent results on ICT-enabled medical technologies. Definitely the journal is a good source of the relevant state-of-the-art information. The IJEHMC is highly recommended to the engineers and researchers involved into the design of novel health-care applications.

– Dr. Alexey Vinel, SPIIRAS, Russia

The fantastic and high quality E-health and medical journal make both readers and authors excited. The knowledge, applications and practice brought by this journal open a new vista to fill the gaps between the medical research and communication technology, between the industry and academia.

– Prof. Honggang Wang, University of Massachusetts, USA

We support and contribute to this journal, because it is the only journal in the world at the moment that deals with communication technology in the medical field. The subjects covered are not only hardware, but also software, management, and the legal system. This journal is attracting articles from a wide range of eHealth & telemedicine and deserves to be highly praised.

– Isao Nakajima, M.D., Ph.D., Tokai University School of Medicine, Japan

Using information and communication technology to improve healthcare quality and reduce costs for ubiquitous healthcare has been recognized and is being implemented as a national priority in major world economies. The International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC) acts as an interface between e-health and communication technologies and their contribution to medical fields. IJEHMC publishes high quality application papers, survey and tutorial papers, case studies, and short research notes reflecting global e-health technologies and medical communications contributing to thestate-of-art advances in the fields. In my opinion, IJEHMC is one the best journals on E-Health all over the world.

– Prof. Liang Zhou, Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications, China

In its short lifespan IJEHMC has achieved to bring to the attention of the research community a large number of innovative concepts in e-health and medical communications. As an academic and researcher in computer systems and networks I was looking for a better understanding of the applications of my field in medicine and healthcare. This journal has provided exactly that, since it combines, very successfully, the medical and biomedical field with practical healthcare and ICT. This makes IJEHMC an invaluable tool to anyone wanting to stay abreast of the critical issues in this emerging multi-disciplinary field.

– Prof. Vasos Vassiliou, University of Cyprus

International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications is a very interesting journal in the area of health technologies. It explores how communication and embedded devices can leverage and bring better health care to all populations. This is also especially important as the challenges posed by aging population are pushing researchers and technicians to act quickly before the health systems become unsustainable in developed countries. In these times of information overload, it is important to find magazines like IJEHMC. It is informative, timely and a comprehensive resource.

– Prof. Jorge Sá Silva, University of Coimbra, Portugal

The Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJHMC) is an important venue dedicated for publishing high quality research articles in the area. E-Health is an emergent topic that poses many challenges to multiple disciplines, such as Computer Science, Engineering, Health and Social Sciences. Particularly, in the Computer Science concern, E-Health has a great interface with pervasive and assistive computing, therefore, allowing a whole new set of innovative applications. In this context, the IJHMC plays a key role for developing of new technologies in the E-Health field.

– Prof. Eduardo Freire Nakamura, Federal University of Amazonas, Brazil

The research works published in the "International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications" are great sources to stay current with the latest applications and practices in the interdisciplinary areas of telemedicine, and medical communications. Over the past past few years, the high quality articles in the journal have guided many of my students' works. I look forward to more issues and topics over the coming year."

– Prof. Farid Farahmand, Sonoma State University – CA, USA

As a reviewer, and a contributing Author, I wish to endorse the International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC) as a very good resource to keep up with the latest in the interdisciplinary areas of biomedicine, telecare and telemedicine from different parts of the globe. Moreover, being one of the "official" peer-reviewed journal publications of the e-health Technical Committee of the IEEE ComSoc, it is another avenue to disseminate novel ideas t an international level in these fast-developing areas. I would also like to draw attention to the truly international editorial board, which is another factor to ensure high-quality, unpublished ideas to find a place in the IJEHMC, thereby impacting the quality of the publication positively.

– Dr. Aravind Kailas, Aravind Kailas, Univ of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA
