Journal of Healthcare and Medical Technology


Healthcare and Medical Technology encompasses a range of services or systems, such as electronic health records, telemedicine, health knowledge management, m-health or mobile health and healthcare information systems. E-healthcare is especially important in countries or areas which are remote and where physical health infrastructure may be sparse. Essentially, e-healthcare enables two places with similar problems to share knowledge and technology; without having to replicate the efforts. With large-scale emerging technologies such as cloud computing, wireless networks and mobile computing solutions, such as cellular 3G, Wi-Fi mesh, WiMAX, Bluetooth, RFID, and Wireless Sensor Networks, healthcare personnel can tap into vital information anywhere and at any time within the healthcare networks. Ubiquitous healthcare, although promising, there are myriad challenges associated with realizing its vision. This journal aims to gather researches advance methodologies, strategies, frameworks, architectures and algorithms for emerging technologies applied in e-healthcare systems.

    This is a study in which the purpose is to investigate the psychological changes of women receiving nail art procedures. With particular regard to depression, self-esteem, and vital signs which are said to be the biggest problems among senior citizens in modern society. We investigated the positive effects of nail art procedures such as reduced depression, improved self-esteem and vital signs in elderly women. Through this study, we hope that nail art procedures will be established as a daily program to help women who suffer from mental health problems; and that nail art procedures, which are accessible in everyday life by all ages, can positively contribute to the psychology of people.
