IEEE Xplore for medical technology solutions

The IEEE Xplore digital library is a powerful resource for finding scientific and technical content published by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and its publishing partners. IEEE Xplore’s content are StandardsPublicationsConferences and communities. 

The IEEE Xplore digital library is useful for senior students and researchers.

Despite the many technical solutions in IEEE Xplore, you can also find articles that give a general view on medical technology solutions, trends and challenges. An example is the article "Remote patient monitoring technologies and marketing" published in 2023. 
Search within IEEE Xplore with the MESH Medical Subject Heading. 

With regard to healthcare, you will find the following topics (amongst other) in IEEE Xplore: 

Medical signal processing (+33000 resultaten)

Patient monitoring (+22000 resultaten)

Patient care treatment (+4000 resultaten)

Telemedicine (+6000 resultaten)

For comprehensive research, it is useful to gain knowledge of other terms in the research field/topic. Consider combining terms for a search strategy in different databases. IEEE's keyword system has three different terms:

  • IEEE Terms - keywords assigned to IEEE journal articles and conference papers from a controlled vocabulary created by the IEEE.
  • Author keywords: terms provided by the author which describe the topics or subjects of the document.
  • Index Terms - combined field which allows users to search the Author Keywords, IEEE Terms, and Mesh Terms.
