Health Affairs plans to publish an issue on the topic of Connected Health in February 2014. Connected health covers the development of technologies that are aimed at expanding treatment opportunities that extend beyond traditional care settings, such as telehealth, remote monitoring devices, etc.

We aim to present a compilation of articles on connected health technologies and how to maximize their effective, efficient, and safe use. The volume will inform those in the public health and health care sectors, as well as employers, government agencies and the nation’s policy makers, of measures needed to support the adoption of these technologies and overcome obstacles to tapping their full potential.

We seek research articles, analyses, and commentary from researchers and scholars, analysts, and health system stakeholders. To be considered for the issue, papers must be submitted by September 1, 2013.

For more details on content guidelines, submission procedures, and other matters related to this thematic issue, consult the page for the issue on our site. You can also contact deputy editor Sarah Dine ( or executive editor Don Metz (
