Session Abstract

Despite rapid advances in health information-gathering technologies, barriers persist between patients or health consumers and health care providers in not only sharing health information, but also in facilitating valuable engagement and use of health information. This half-day workshop at iConference 2018 will bring together a diverse range of participants from around the world to identify barriers to, and opportunities for, information sharing to support health and wellness. We focus on three workshop themes: 1. health informatics; 2. data analytics; and 3. user experience design, to discuss the ongoing challenges in this area. We are interested in using this workshop to provide an arena for discussions about how to increase patient engagement through information use, given the rapid advances in health technologies, the diverse stakeholders implicated in the health context, and the ongoing challenges of designing for engagement.
