Supporting Patient-Clinician Collaboration on Shared Surfaces

Tuesday, August 20, 2024 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

[] Join the IEEE Toronto Instrumentation & Measurement – Robotics & Automation Joint Chapter for a talk on the Supporting Patient-Clinician Collaboration on Shared Surfaces, presented by Dr. Fateme Rajabiyazdi from Carleton University. Tuesday, August 20, 2024 @ 4:00 – 5:00 PM Abstract: Patient health data needs to be discussed between patients and clinicians to make treatment decisions, inform lifestyle changes and improve care management. Sharing this data is necessary to allow for the simultaneous review of, interaction with, and manipulation of the data. However, there is a lack of meaningful collaboration and appropriate technological tools to enable close interactions between the clinical team and patients. Standard technological devices (i.e., a computer, a desktop monitor) and systems (i.e., electronic health records) that are available in clinics do not have the capabilities to facilitate a patient’s view or understanding of the data, nor interactions with their data. As a result, patients are not empowered to share health responsibilities with clinicians to discuss and make clinical care decisions. In this talk, Dr. Rajabiyazdi will discuss their progress in designing innovative technological data-centric systems displaying patient health data on shared surfaces to empower patient-clinician interaction using an iterative people-centered method.
