Putting Healthcare in Your Hands

April 9th, 2014

Join us on Friday, April 9 for a 12-1pm talk by Beenish Chaudhry entitled: “Putting Healthcare in Your Hands” in King 235.

Abstract: Our healthcare system is undergoing a seismic shift that is breaking the old information asymmetry – where doctors had all the information and patients had very little – now technology is being used to collect data to give patients an easy way to access key facts and gain knowledge for decisions about health. While we know how to target this information for the affluent and their lifestyles, what are we doing for those with low socioeconomic background? In this talk, you will learn about technology design challenges and solutions for this population, and what needs to be done in the future.
