2017 Special Topic Conference (STC) – The practice of patient centered care: Empowering and engaging patients in the digital era
In Memory of Assa Reichart
This conference will provide a platform for researchers, practitioners, decision makers and entrepreneurs to discuss ways for sustainable and inclusive innovations aimed at patient’s/consumer’s uptake, engagement and empowerment.
Realizing the potential of consumers’ eHealth products (electronic tools for patients, informal caregivers and healthy consumers) in improving health care delivery and outcomes requires practitioners and designers to take account of existing diversity among users. This diversity contributes to differential access, uptake, and benefits derived from emerging eHealth technologies.
Invited lectures, by academics and entrepreneurs, are called to chart visions on inclusive eHealth: Design practices, interventions and implementation strategies that could benefit socially-diverse groups.
