Wearable systems for Scalable computing (W_SC) technologies have become a more prominent area of research to support cost-effective clinically sensitive data for more informed patient monitoring and diagnosis over a secured and intelligent IoT infrastructure. Scalable computing plays an important role in real-time big medical data analytics plays to improve efficiency and enhances the interactions between humans with IoT technology. This call aims to identify innovative W_SC and eHealth solutions that address the various global health issues and which are likely to be appropriate and affordable for use in various environments including low-resource settings, rural areas, and the urbanized world – all of them face their challenges in providing healthcare. There is a need for immediate technological solutions through vital information recognition, interpretation, exchange, and analysis of human affects. Medical wearable and Scalable devices and further eHealth solutions are indispensable in health care delivery as tools for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation, to complex electronic medical record systems - are promising approaches in the use of information and communication technologies to support health systems and services. The rapid advances in wearable technologies and data acquisition tools have led to the new era of Big data, where massive heterogeneous data are collected by different sensors. The enhancing accessibility of the data resources gives new scopes for health monitoring, while the data aggregated from multiple sensors to make strong decisions remains a challenging problem. Smart wearable and Scalable devices and associated technologies have been growing exponentially that compromise accurate, low-cost, extreme-low power, less mobile sensors powered, less-powered processors, and low-powered connectivity.

It is predicted that biomedical services will be provided remotely in an extensive platform, for instance, wearable and Scalable sensing and monitoring to envisage illnesses, and intelligent medical help based on artificial intelligence schemes. To reach this aim, disruptive medical IoT and W_SC for distributed healthcare systems can give some vital insights. All networked enabled connected devices exchanges their information via a heterogeneous connection, which is changing the global business, generating revenue, providing smarter interactions, and improving efficiencies. The machine-to-machine communication and connectivity technologies give tremendous efforts towards the ubiquitous IoT-enabled wearable devices where the devices/objects are performed well intelligently. The body-worn sensors perform excellently for strengthening the IoT and W_SC for big medical data acquiring, networking, processing, analyzing, and visualizing for a wide range of societal personal advancements.
