Moving care into the home: reimagining mHealth, telecare and selfcare

Speaker:  Geraldine Fitzpatrick – Vienna, Austria
Topic(s):  Applied Computing


Technology is seen as the critical enabler for moving care out of clinical settings into patients’ hands and homes, for empowering people to be active in their own health and well-being and for managing people with chronic conditions in the community. This presents a radically different design space for health IT and for health practice; it fundamentally challenges our notions of patient, clinician, care and home and the roles that technology can play. I will reflect on experiences to date in delivering these new health technologies, variably under labels such as mHealth, telecare and selfcare, and ask how we can re-imagine these technologies to better fit into our lives and deliver value to both the people who use them and their care providers.
