Increasing and aging populations with more chronic illnesses are straining health services in both developed and developing countries. E-health services may improve access to quality health information and improve self-management and thereby help alleviate the burden on health services. In addition, e-health can improve the quality of health services by increasing shared decision-making and by empowering patients.
E-health can be defined as the use of information and communication technology for the enablement or improvement of health care. A rapid technological development with increasing Internet access around the world and the pervasiveness of smartphones makes e-health relevant to all. E-health has expanded from web-based services to health apps, online video services, and social media, and new services and technologies are constantly being presented.
We welcome papers that address e-health services, especially from medical, psychological, and societal perspectives. The description of e-health services and their use, studies of why e-health services are used, the various outcomes of using such services, and how e-health services impact traditional health services are examples of topics that are within the scope of this Special Issue.

In 2019, Vietnam reached the 12th position in scientific production in Asia, producing over 12,000 publications, according to the Scimago Journal & Country Rank, up from about 400 in 2000, showing a remarkable trend towards improvement. Investigators throughout the country have sought to insert Vietnam into the mainstream of world-class research. Herein, we present research concerning various areas of medical care, including autism, cardiovascular disease markers, hypertension, ischemic stroke, molecular diagnosis of cancer, neurological pathologies, novel cancer surgery techniques, and osteoporosis. This research topic special session demonstrates the diversity of medical research developed in Vietnam as well as the quality of their scientific studies. Besides adapting new techniques to local conditions, these studies demonstrate problems unique to this region of the world. We hope that this initiative helps insert Vietnam into the mainstream of international scientific investigation. We also believe that it will serve as encouragement to researchers from Vietnam and other countries in Southeast Asia, and those from other emerging countries, to continue to conduct and publish quality scientific investigations, so that they can effectively participate in the worldwide efforts to improve human health conditions.

The manuscripts were selected and submitted by a coalition of Vietnamese medical science researchers
