After the successful first year of the conference, the Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the Second International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare. Pervasive healthcare is an emerging research discipline, focusing on the development and application of pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology for healthcare and wellness. Pervasive healthcare seeks to respond to pressures towards healthcare system, arising from a number of factors, including the increased incidence of life-style related and chronic diseases, emerging consumerism in healthcare, need for empowering patients and relatives for self-care and management of their health, and need to provide seamless access for health care services, independent of time and place. Pervasive healthcare may be defined from two perspectives. First, it is the development and application of pervasive computing (or ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence) technologies for healthcare, health and wellness management. Second, it seeks to make healthcare available to anyone, anytime, and anywhere by removing location, time and other restraints while increasing both the coverage and quality of healthcare. Pervasive Healthcare conference aims to gather together experts in pervasive healthcare for sharing information on recent developments - both technical and system-level - contributing towards emerging pervasive healthcare discipline.
