Call for Papers:

Due to recent developments in health care, health-care politics, and in demographic trends, we see a large potential, and importance, for technology to support people in self-management of health issues, and even more importantly, healthy living, i.e., use of persuasive technology to make exercise regular and fun, to make good food choices, to quantify self, etc. Due to the large stress on the health care systems, especially with elderly and chronically ill patients, self-management and digital tools to maintain the quality of care are incredibly important. But many questions arise: Is digital support well enough designed for a specific target group that it was intended for? Are people willing and able to use this technology? What are the consequences of using the technology for their disease and quality of life? How can people incorporate these technologies into their daily life practices?

Our perspective is primarily user, or patient, centered. However, outstanding contributions from the perspective of the care professionals, or the informal care providers, are also of interest. How do patient-centered solutions affect work of care professionals? What does supportive technology mean for informal care providers and the crucial role they play in the current and future health care system?

Topics:

  • Patient-centered and participatory design for digital health (methods or solutions)
  • Health-oriented interaction design
  • Effects of digital health support on patients, care professionals, informal careers
  • Learning processes for patients, care professionals and informal care providers related to digital solutions
  • Opportunities Internet of Things offers for health care systems
  • Mobile e-health oriented solutions
  • Specialized citizen-tracking systems
  • Big data processing for citizen well-being
  • Real-time medical data mining, collection and interpretation
  • Medical systems and technologies
  • Effects of Do-It-Yourself patients on the health care systems
  • Assistive well-being; assistive technologies, accessible devices and content (smart phones, gaming consoles, interactive boards, interactive TVs, kiosks, e-books, e-learning, e-banking, e-commence)
  • ICT platforms for domestic healthcare of patients affected by chronic diseases
  • Systems for monitoring special diseases (Parkinson, Alzheimer, Diabetes, etc.)
