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.

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.

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also like to draw attention to the truly international editorial board, which is another factor to ensure high-quality, unpublished ideas to find a place in the IJEHMC, thereby impacting the quality of the publication positively.
