Leveraging Patient-Generated Data for Collaborative Decision Making in Healthcare
Workshop at the International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare (PervasiveHealth 2017)
May 23rd, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.

Leveraging Patient-Generated Data for Collaborative Decision Making in Healthcare Self-tracking has become increasingly popular both in research and practice due to an explosion of wearable sensors and mobile health (mHealth) apps, with the premise of enhancing self-knowledge, fostering reflection, and promoting behavior change. We believe that self-tracking data collected specifically by patients have great potential in the medical contexts where patients and clinicians can leverage the data for better decision making. However, in practice, it is still not clear how we can fully leverage these patient-generated data (PGD) and integrate them into the clinical workflow.

Our workshop will outline current challenges and research agenda in leveraging PGD in clinical practice and to bridge academic and professional communities including health informatics, human-computer interaction (HCI), information visualization (InfoVis), and medicine to discuss this topic. We plan to develop a research agenda together by discussing ongoing research, sharing challenges and best practices, and identifying open research questions. The final outcome of the workshop will include a set of concrete scenarios of PGD sharing and collaborative decision making, design rationales of the PGD sharing platforms and visualizations, evaluation criteria to assess the success of the PGD sharing, and plans for continuous efforts in the future.
