Special Track on Collaboration and Technology-Mediated Communication
in Healthcare
Bridget Kane & Saturnino Luz,
Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
Communication, Teamwork, Interaction and Mobility are terms we have
come to associate with healthcare work. Communication can be
synchronous or asynchronous, coupled and often mediated by multimedia
technology. The challenge of co-ordination and supporting co-operation
in these work settings is an on-going problem for designers and
developers. Co-ordination of information among teams and between
institutional settings is critical for efficient and effective
healthcare delivery.
In this economic climate, we are especially challenged to find more
efficient and effective methods of delivering services. We are
provoked to provide novel approaches to help to control disease and
maintain a healthy population. A range of technologies have the
potential for hospitals, teams, and individuals to reconfigure their
traditional practices in new and effective ways.
We invite reports on significant unpublished work in the area of
computer-support for co-operative work in healthcare, with particular
emphasis on design and technology applications for interaction among
medical specialists, and between medical specialists and
patients. Research on support for collaboration among medical,
nursing, scientific, ancillary staff and patients is encouraged,
including case studies or incident reports.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Collaboration between individuals
Co-ordination of Information
Ward rounds
Team working
Meeting support
Shift handover
Speech and Language in communication
Shared displays
Technology-mediated communication
Remote collaboration
Visual communication environments
Intense collaborative environments
Collaborative writing note-taking
Carer - Patient collaboration
Computer support for co-operative healthcare work
