Designing technologies for health management beyond hospitals: pathways to everyday healthy living
With the continual advancement of AI and smart devices, more and more healthcare technologies are reaching out from clinical settings and entering into everyday space, e.g. for health monitoring, tracking, screening and so on. This opens up questions of how lay people can make use of these healthcare technologies in everyday lives, and how we shall design them to be better integrated into everyday health practices. In this talk, Sharon will share her recent work on studying and designing healthcare technologies for everyday healthy living, including designing intelligent self-checkup based mobile applications , as well as automatic stress tracking based applications. Sharon will talk about challenges uncovered from these studies, and design explorations to address these challenges.
Xianghua (Sharon) Ding is a Senior Lecturer in Healthcare Technologies in the School of Computer Science at the University of Glasgow. Before joining the University of Glasgow in 2021, she was an Associate Professor at Fudan University, Shanghai, China. She received her Ph.D. from University of California, Irvine, USA. Her research involves designing technologies to promote individual and social well-being, and her recent work focuses on social-technical approaches to empowering people for effective health data engagement and health management beyond hospital settings, with a particular interest in preventive health, mental well-being, and self-management of chronic diseases.
