Abstract

The proposed workshop aims to form a community of individuals interested in using computing technology to promote healthcare and support wellness in the context of homecare. We strive to connect and engage researchers from several distinct fields of scientific inquiry and practice: people with clinical experience, developers of enabling technologies and HCI researchers interested in home healthcare and issues such as aging in place. The focus of this one-day workshop is on establishing common ground in vocabulary, research methods and research framework; understanding the shared needs of people with health challenges, their families and clinicians, and developing a joint framework for future research.
