UCLIC Research Seminar Series
Successful innovations require consideration of three main criteria: Feasibility: is the solution technically feasible? Viability: is it cost-effective? and Desirability: will people want to use it? This is where human centred design is crucial.
In this talk I will discuss how we apply a human centred approach to design digital interventions in healthcare to promote informed decision making and facilitate behaviour change. This includes designing decision support systems for healthcare professionals, interventions to support patients in self-managing their health conditions and public health interventions to promote wellbeing and sustainable behaviour change.
Talya Porat is a Senior Lecturer at the Dyson School of Design Engineering, Imperial College London. Her research is in the domains of Human Factors, Human-Computer Interaction and Cognitive Engineering in healthcare, with special interest in the design of novel digital interventions to facilitate decision making and behaviour change to improve patient health outcomes.
