* Design Contributions to Pervasive Healthcare 2nd CFP *


Workshop at Pervasive Health 2019 <>


13th EAI International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for

Healthcare - 20-23 May 2019, Trento, Italy.

A design approach (e.g. Interaction Design, Product Design…) to pervasive
healthcare will deliver a better quality of care and quality of life to the
patients. The workshop is about design projects that encourage and support
patients into adopting better lifestyles to improve their condition, and
into practicing better self-management of condition. This could be done

with design interventions to stimulate long-lasting effects on patient
motivation, affects and engagement. There is also a focus on the medical
benefits of such a design approach, notably improvement of medication
compliance and reduction of the patients’ demand on health services (visits
to the hospital clinics, and interaction with healthcare professionals for

routine issues).

** Workshop Topics

This workshop has been planned as a forum to discuss the contribution
design (e.g. industrial, interaction, service, or product design), and in
particular design methodologies and processes, can make to pervasive
healthcare. It is also a forum to identify the main opportunities and
challenges of designing for Pervasive Healthcare Systems (PHS). Such design
opportunities and challenges, to be addressed within the workshop, can be
summarised as design approaches, processes and methodologies to:

1. Deliver long-lasting motivation and engagement changes that are
conducive to effective support and assistance healthcare

2. Address daily interaction of patients with a PHS and with their medical
and personal data

3. Allow for the personalisation and adaptation of the PHS to patients,
their condition, lifestyle, culture and socio-economics.

We seek paper contributions with studies, theories, case studies, and
(preliminary) experimental results aiming to address issues, such as (but
not limited to):

- Patient lifestyle, preferences and needs and how they should be
considered in the implementation of the PHS

- Patient (and close relatives) as fully participating partners in the
management of the patient’s condition and the operation of the PHS

- The PHS configuration, the management of the condition and the objectives
to achieve as clearly communicated, shared and agreed with the patient

- Negative aspects of the condition, notably psychological ones and how
they are integrated in the self-management planning, and are focus points
of the PHS implementation

- Privacy, participation of close relatives, connection with
patients-to-patients moderated social network, and how they are managed
according to patient choices

- Daily patient interaction with the PHS and in particular with their
personal and health data.

** Submissions key dates

25th February 2019 – Deadline for paper submission to the workshop

15th March 2019 – Workshop papers notification

25th March 2019 – Deadline for camera ready submission

** Workshop Outcomes

The workshop will conclude by identifying promising design approaches and
processes to pervasive healthcare, and key opportunities and challenges
pertaining to the design of a PHS. The organisers of the workshop will
gather insights and summarise the workshop outcomes in a journal paper on
design processes and methodologies contributions to pervasive healthcare.

Authors of workshop position papers will be invited to develop their
contributions following the workshop, for submission and possible
publication in a special issue of  Design Studies <>  on “design contributions
(as processes and methodologies) to Pervasive Healthcare”.
