      Contact Ben Shneiderman at [log in to unmask] for more information
 The proliferation of inexpensive mobile devices, in-home medical appliances, and personal health record keeping is rapidly increasing the role of people in their healthcare and wellness monitoring. This workshop will promote improvement to the usability aspects of existing interfaces, help identify best practices, and promote consistency across devices. The goals are to encourage awareness of lifestyle changes, improve treatment compliance, facilitate data transfer to healthcare team members, and demonstrate appropriate information visualizations. Researchers and developers are invited to present their work.
