The cover photo of July 2019 issue is dedicated to the 41st anniversary of the first reported synthetic approach of dendritic hyperbranched structure. The cover photo adopted from the Valer et al., where they reported the preparation of dendritic hyperbranched copolymers based on bis(hydroxyl methyl) propionic acid polyester and studied the architecture - behavior - properties relationship. Dendritic structures are known for their perfect chemical definition, highly dense structure, and a well-defined number of surface functionalities. The soft multifunctional modifications could be compliant to valuable flexibility for embedding different chemical moieties on the surface either within the structure or at the core.

The field of medicine and healthcare services is one of those rare industries that are yet relatively unknown to the world of technology and cloud computing. It would not be wrong to say that the world of medicine has always been an ocean of paper trails, fax machines and hard copies. Due to these physical records and paper trails, the medical industry and healthcare services have always restricted to access privacy barriers and isolated data for each patient.For many years now, the industry has been screaming for a better system. There is no doubt about that healthcare services and medicine industry holds a number of flaws in terms of smart functioning.
