Improving Patient Quality of Life with Consumer Health Informatics
Department of Computer Science

Katie Siek will discuss the history of medical informatics and how consumer health informatics emerged. She will use real-world examples from her research showing how technology can improve patient quality of life by making patients more independent, empowered, and knowledgeable about their personal health. She will also discuss the implications on such technology on health researchers, clinicians, and family members. She will finish the talk by discussing the framework she developed for conducting user studies in hospital environments with patients.
