Dear all,
please see below description and details for participating in


*** Please forward to anyone who might be interested ***

*Workshop in Pervasive Health 2018*
The workshop is colocated with *Pervasive Helth 2018
<http://pervasivehealth.org/>*, the 12th EAI International Conference on
Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare, to be held in New York
(US) from May 21 to 24, 2018.

IMPAcT Workshop: Improving healthcare through service design and patient
empowerment technologies
Service design can provide tools for addressing challenges related to the
adoption of pervasive health technologies. In this workshop, we will
connect people interested in design methods and approaches which address
the specific needs of digitalization of healthcare, and possibilities of
patient empowerment.
Scope and Topics
Digitalization of healthcare creates opportunities for services which allow
patients to have a stronger role in their care. For example, shared
decision-making tools can empower patients in care-related decisions,
sensor devices can help patients in building self-awareness of their
health, and digital platforms provide new ways for patients to communicate
with their peers and care professionals. Service design offers tools for
harnessing these new digital enablers for patient empowerment through
understanding ecosystems, user journeys and value co-creation models needed
for successful implementation and adoption in the context of care.

The motivation of the workshop is to connect people who have an interest in
creating knowledge and tools addressing specific needs of designing
services addressing the issues related to digitalization of services in
healthcare context. In current service design methods, there is a gap in
addressing digital nature of the service, for example interoperability,
usability, security, personalization of the service pathway. In addition,
there is need for addressing the specific characteristics of healthcare
context in service design guidelines and approaches, such as designing for
patient empowerment, health-behaviour change or self-management of chronic
diseases. This workshop aims at creating new knowledge on how service
design methods, tools and approaches can help in addressing digitalization
in healthcare.

*The workshop **welcome** papers on:*
Tailored technologies and services for person/patient empowerment, from
prevention to treatment.
Caregiver-Patient collaboration frameworks for decision making.
Specific approaches to tackle interoperability, usability, security, in the
personalization of the clinical service pathway.
Experiences of clinical pathway transformation driven by pervasive
Cases of use of pervasive and social technologies for disease support.
Description and application of service design methodologies in healthcare.
Prospective studies on the potential of pervasive technologies as agent of
change in traditional healthcare systems.

*Paper Submissions*
We invite both short (up to 4 pages) and long papers (up to 10 pages). The
materials presented in the papers should not be published or under
submission elsewhere. All submissions will be reviewed by the Program
Committee and external experts to reach a decision on acceptance. In some
cases, the Program Committee may decide to conditionally accept a paper to
allow the authors to update their submission based on the committee's
feedback. Proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
Submissions must adhere to the double-column ACM format using SIGCHI
template. Proceeding templates must be used for preparing the submissions
(Word and LaTeX templates are available at https://www.acm.org/
publications/proceedings-template). Please follow the instructions
available at http://pervasivehealth.org/authors-kit/.

Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the
Electronic Jounal for Information Systems Evaluation.

*Your paper must be submitted in PDF format to
impactworkshop[at]gmail[dot]com*. Updated information on the workshop is
available at IMPAcT Workshop website (http://www.grpss.ssr.upm.es/
