Announcing Chicago Workshop on 'Usability and User-Centered Design for Consumer Health Information Technologies '

Workshop #2: Usability and User-Centered Design for Consumer Health Information Technologiesа
Presented by Enid Montague, Northwestern University and Rupa Valdez, University of Virginia

This workshop will introduce attendees to the field of usability engineering and user-centered design (UCD) as it applies to the growing field of consumer health information technology. Attendees will learn about the fundamentals of user-centered design and usability evaluation that have been used to develop and test consumer products and technologies, which can be applied to e-health applications and interventions.

Participants will learn about key standards-related UCD, usability and accessibility applicable to designing products, information technologies, or Web interventions. They will learn about the key personnel who are needed to evaluate user needs and usability in a variety of contexts (e.g., home, work, mobile, and clinical environments) and for a variety of user characteristics (e.g., cognitive capabilities, culture, age, and clinical need). Finally, participants will learn techniques for incorporating UCD and usability testing into stages of the health informatics development process, including generating ideas, identifying end users, developing product concepts, testing products, implementing products, and promoting adoption. Case studies of UCD concepts and methods will be presented, and participants will have opportunities to try UCD activities and usability-testing techniques during interactive breakouts.

When: The workshop will take placeаon Sunday, March 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
