Today's medical and healthcare systems have become increasingly computation-intensive due to the demands of digital medical data and rapid developments in IT technologies/methodologies. IJCMH meets the need for publications addressing translational and/or transformative scientific research in medicine and healthcare. It is a forum for medical researchers, computational scientists, engineers and other professionals, and processes research papers and reports of medical studies on medical scientific discoveries, innovative engineering design and applications for healthcare system improvement using data and computational systems.
Topics covered include
- Large-scale computing/computations
- Mathematical multi-scale modelling/simulation
- Clinical translational science/technology-oriented computing/computations

More on this journal...
The objectives of IJCMH are to establish an effective forum and channel of communication between academic researchers, medical and healthcare professionals, industrial sectors and enterprise, research institutions and government agencies, and any professionals who work in medical and bioengineering areas within the community of medicine and healthcare science. It also aims to promote and coordinate future developments in the field of computational medicine and biomedical engineering. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural, national and global barriers, to meet the needs of accelerating medical and healthcare technologies, and to catalyse challenging problem-solving and innovative medical device research developments through computational impacts for today and tomorrow’s global healthcare deliveries.
IJCMH provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers working in medical and engineering areas within the community of medicine and healthcare science to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJCMH publishes original scientific and/or research papers, review articles, technical reports and case studies. The journal will occasionally publish Special Issues devote to important topics within the area..
