Welcome to the 2018 International Conference on Medical Engineering and Health Informatics (MEHI-2018). MEHI-2018 will be held during May 20-21,2018 in Kunming, China. Medical science incorporates scientific/technological advances combining to produce more accurate diagnoses, effective treatments with fewer side effects, and improved ability to prevent disease and provide superior-quality healthcare. Medical engineering is a branch of engineering, which covers the application of the principles and problem-solving techniques of engineering to biology and medicine. This is evident throughout healthcare, from diagnosis and analysis to treatment and recovery, and has entered the public conscience though the proliferation of implantable medical devices, such as pacemakers and artificial hips, to more futuristic technologies such as stem cell engineering and the 3-D printing of biological organs. This differs from other engineering disciplines that have an influence on human health in which biomedical engineers use and apply an intimate knowledge of modern biological principles in their engineering design process. Aspects of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, materials science, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science and engineering are all integrated with human biology in medical engineering to improve human health. This branch offers a synthesis of physical, chemical, mathematical and computational sciences combined with engineering principles to enhance R&D in biology, medicine, behaviour, and health. Economically speaking, medical engineering grows three fold each year. New medical devices, arising in the research laboratories of medical engineers around the world, have completely altered the manner by which disease and trauma is dealt with by physicians, extending the quality and length of human life. There are many subdisciplines within medical engineering, including the design and development of active and passive medical devices, orthopedic implants, medical imaging, biomedical signal processing, tissue and stem cell engineering, and clinical engineering, just to name a few.
