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.

    The objective of this study was to analyze the relationship between perception of E-cigarette and smoking cessation attempts in college students known to have strong mental and physical maturity, social justice, and ideals compared to adolescents and have strong desire. Data analysis was done by using frequency analysis and chi-square test to analyze the general characteristics and E-cigarette perception of the subjects, and the relationship with the smoking cessation attempt using SPSS version 25.0. An analysis of the relationship between general characteristics and reasons for E-cigarette selection, the average no. of cigarettes smoked per day and smoking cessation were statistically significant (p <.05 for each) factors contributing to the selection of E-cigarettes. A health policy should be established so that continuous smoking cessation support services can be provided to college students along with a healthcare approach to disseminate proper awareness of E-cigarette.
