2011 (English)In: Human-centered design of e-health technologies: concepts, methods and applications / [ed] Martina Ziefle (RWTH Aachen University, Germany); Carsten Röcker (RWTH Aachen University, Germany), Hershey PA, United States: IGI Global , 2011, 65-93 p.Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Electronic healthcare technologies support the interaction between patients and health-service providers, institution-to-institution transmission of data, and peer-to-peer communication between patients and health professionals. These technologies promise to deliver significant improvements in access to care, quality of care, and the efficiency and productivity of the health sector.Human-Centered Design of E-Health Technologies: Concepts, Methods and Applications unites researchers and industry practitioners from different disciplines to share their domain-specific knowledge and thereby contribute to a holistic introduction into the area of human-centered design for e-health applications. The knowledge and insights provided in this book will help students, as well as systems designers, to understand the fundamental social and technical requirements future e-health systems have to meet. By providing a well-rounded introduction within one single volume, this book is equally suited as a library reference and upper-level course supplement, but also represents a first-class resource for independent study.
