Information technologies and healthcare industry: Challenges and trends for post pandemic scenarios

Aims and scope

The coronavirus outbreak represented a major disruptive challenge for the livelihoods of citizens and economies around the world. Countries and regions adopted measures to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, increase the capacity of national health systems, develop new vaccines and save lives across the world. It was important to protect workers and economic sectors from the negative impact of this pandemic, recover jobs, boost the economies and improve the situation of companies, especially those severely damaged, like tourism. Now more than two years after the global pandemic outbreak, it is crucial to be prepared for future pandemics and other health challenges as well as learn from the lessons of the current covid-19 pandemic.

The European Commission has supported research and innovation on coronavirus. In 2020, it has launched several actions that address “epidemiology, preparedness and response to outbreaks, the development of diagnostics, treatments and vaccines, as well as the infrastructures and resources that enable this research” (European Commission, 2020).

The special issue will focus on the role of advances in digital and collaborative technologies to offer rapid and effective tools for better health solutions for new and emerging health problems. Additionally, it will explore how information technologies impact on the management of the covid-19 global outbreak. Finally, the special issue will discuss policy making in the area of digital health in Europe and other regions. The special issue will emphasize empirical studies, case studies and comparative studies (Europa, Gulf Region, Asia, Latin America, USA-Canada, etc).
