27.6.2019: From usability to adoption – creating mHealth solutions that work

Despite the existence of adequate technological infrastructure and clearer policies, there are situations where users, mainly physicians, resist mobile health (mHealth) solutions. This is of particular concern, bearing in mind that several studies, both in developed and developing countries, show that clinicians‘ adoption is the most influential factor in such solutions‘ success.

So what are the factors impacting mHealth acceptance and adoption? And how can we develop solutions that will stay relevant and useful to our target users? It’s a bit more complex than it seems.

Join the discussion with Christine K. Jacob, founder of Digi-Bridges, an agency that helps unleash the potential of using Digital Strategies in advancing healthcare. Christine is also a Health Tech researcher at ARU in Cambridge and teaches Digital Marketing and Communications at the University of Applied Sciences Northwest Switzerland.

15.5.2019: The second sex – Digital Health for women and others

Have you ever used a health tracking app and wondered why it was not better designed for women?

That’s because although there are plenty of health and wellness related apps and products today, most of them are designed and built by men. Many of them therefore unintentionally exclude the needs of women users (and others) in the process.

So how can we create health apps that are well-designed, highly usable, and accessible to women?

After years of observing, evaluating, and designing digital products for various industries including healthcare, UX expert Sibylle will share her insights on user-centered design in the digital health sector, and discuss diverse examples of good and poor design.

She will also touch on the issue of ethics in design, discussing how not only UX designers but everybody in the design team can become more conscious in their processes, ensuring that digital health apps created are inclusive and meet the needs of diverse users.

6.2.2019: „Women in Digital Health“ presents: „Medical Software Systems Using Artificial Intelligence: Lessons Learned and Prospects“ by Susanne Suter (SCS)

Very excited to announce that our next guest speaker will be Susanne Suter, Project Manager and Software Engineer at Supercomputing Systems, with the topic „Medical Software Systems Using Artificial Intelligence: Lessons Learned and Prospects „.

1st part: Susanne will tell us how she became the lead of multidisciplinary innovative projects at the interface between computer science, biology and medicine and how she became a mentor at „Super Computing Sisters: Women in Engineering“.

2st part:

Today, medical systems produce large amounts of signals, images and other health-related information. Hence, there is a great potential to provide health professionals with software tools based on these data sets. At Supercomputing Systems, Susanne was involved in a number of medical software systems such as a web tool for ophthalmological tumor analysis, a patient monitoring system at a neuro-intensive-care-unit, or web-platforms for second-opinion-reviewing systems for ultrasound hip condition diagnosis and ophthalmologic tissue conditions. During her talk, Susanne presents these medical software systems and how they aggregate data and make use of artificial intelligence. In particular, she highlights the lessons learned and prospects of using artificial intelligence for medical software systems.

3rd part: Networking apéro (sponsored by Supercomputing Systems AG), enjoy snacks, drinks, and get to know other people in digital health
