Closing SHI18 and placing SHI19



Keynote speaker: Jesper Simonsen, Professor of Participatory Design, Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University, Denmark.

Jesper Simonsen has been working with participatory design within the health care domain for many years. In this keynote he will focus of the effects of participatory design and evaluation processes. 


Introducing new IT systems into the healthcare domain sometimes results in inconvenience rather than support to the clinical workflows. Often, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals react critically as they experience that they spend more and more time in front of the screen and less and less time with the patient. It may take years before the IT system works satisfactorily. The new Epic Healthcare Platform in the Capital Region and Region Zealand might (possibly) lead to an effective clinical workflow support - but this may take many years and the regions are uncertain about how to optimize the use of the platform.

The guest lecture will present;
Effects-Driven Participatory Design and Evaluation: A systematic and consistent user-driven sociotechnical approach to developing and optimizing healthcare IT systems and the way they are used. An overview from more than 10 years of research will be presented and examples from projects in the healthcare sector will be provided.


Keynote speaker: Inge Madsen, VIA Health Faculty, Campus Nord, Aarhus, Denmark. Inge Madsen has been working with nursing informatics, developing and implementation of EHR since 1990. She is currently teachning and developing of nursing informatics internationally.In her keynote Inge will focus on the effects on informatics and technology within the nursing area in the future.


In today's complex arena of health and social care there is one professional role that is considered central to healthcare.  That profession is nursing.  While there are many layers of complexity to a healthcare organization, with each function requiring activity data; there is one primary source for such data which is the electronic health record. The value of nursing in the patient journey is not easily captured with the types and structures of data collection in the electronic health record. An other very important part of the nursing future is the influence of Welfare technology.

Welfare technology can contribute to a better quality of life for patients and the improved use of nursing and healthcare resources.  However, there is a gap between the use of technology for concrete solutions and for more purpose-oriented gains, making acquisition and implementation of welfare technology difficult for both public partners and technology vendors.  Nurses are well positioned to assess welfare technology as to its effectiveness in patient well-being and improved resource utilization, and must play an active role in assessing this technology prior to its acquisition and implementation.  The Welfare Technology Assessment tool provides a standardized methodology for nurses to assess welfare technology, which will also inform both technology vendors and public partners in its evolution.

The guest lecture will present an overview of international initiatives will be presented and examples of an evaluations model of welfare technology will be presented
