A special topic for eHealth2018 was “Biomedical meets eHealth - From Sensors to Decisions”.
Future ICT systems and biomedical systems and devices will increasingly be intertwined and share a common entity which is data. This completes the chain and flow of information from the sensor via the processing to the actuator, which can be anything from a human healthcare professional to a Robot. Along this pathway, methods for automating the information processing like machine learning and predictive analytics will play an increasing role in order to provide actionable information and to support preventive health care concepts, in both biomedical and digital healthcare systems and applications.
