CfP: Patient–Clinician Communication: The Roadmap for Human-Computer Interaction
More at:

Our workshop will engage researchers, clinicians, designers, and engineers in issues surrounding technology to promote synchronous patient–clinician communication. We plan to address this critical research area in the following ways:

* Identify emerging technologies that can support different facets of communication in clinical encounters.
* Discuss outcomes that can be measured with novel technologies.
* Explore the sociocultural context for using and evaluating novel technologies.
* Discuss impact on clinical workflows and practices.
* Construct a roadmap for HCI research in this domain.

To participate, we ask applicants to submit a 3-page position paper in the ACM CHI Extended Abstracts format that includes:
(1) Your background, interests, and areas of related work.
(2) A technology that you imagine to be well-suited to enhancing patient–clinician communication and a description of the communicative goals it addresses.

* Please submit your 3-page paper (in PDF format) by January 11th, 2013 as an attachment to: [log in to unmask]
