AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction


In this paper, we discuss current trends in how health professionals and patients are using wearables, connected devices, and software tools to deliver care and health monitoring purposes. We emphasize the importance of considering users’ experience through understanding user workflows, their needs, and their limitations when creating connected health ecosystems (CHES). We discuss both the patient and the provider as “users” in the ecosystem. We note both barriers to using the Internet of medical things (IoMT) to create CHES and efforts to overcome them. The increasing penetration of the Internet and the availability of connected health devices along with changes in reimbursement policies provide an environment for CHES to grow.
