this study, the evolution of the connected health concept is analysed
and visualized to investigate the ever-tightening relationship between
health and technology as well as emerging possibilities regarding
delivery of healthcare services. A scientometric analysis was undertaken
to investigate the trends and evolutionary relations between health and
information systems through the queries in the Web of Science database
using terms related to health and information systems. To understand the
evolutionary relation between different concepts, scientometric
analyses were conducted within five-year intervals using the
VantagePoint, SciMAT, and CiteSpace II software. Consequently, the main
stream of publications related to the connected health concept matching
telemedicine cluster was determined. All other developments in health
and technologies were discussed around this main stream across years.
The trends obtained through the analysis provide insights about the
future of healthcare and technology relationship particularly with
rising importance of privacy, personalized care along with mobile
networks and mobile infrastructure.
