Digital Healthcare in Asia and Gulf Region for Healthy Aging and More Inclusive Societies: Shaping Digital Future provides insight to the potential of advanced information technologies to build stronger healthcare systems, better quality healthcare services, and more resilient societies. The book covers two important regions: Gulf Region (Bahrein, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and UAE) and Asia, and explores how these countries develop policies for healthy aging and how digital tools can serve these goals. This book delivers a collection of relevant, innovative research works on digital healthcare, with four main goals: (1) to cover two geographical regions (Asia and Gulf Region) with important advances in digital healthcare; (2) to present case studies in the field of IT and digital health during the pandemic and analyze the lessons from these studies; (3) to evaluate the latest advances in the field of digital healthcare (especially Artificial Intelligence [AI], Big Data, Blockchain, and 5G); and (4) to discuss implications for main stakeholders (patients, doctors, IT experts, directors, and policy managers) and recommendations for policy makers in these two regions and elsewhere.
