  • Sep 24: HCDE Speaker: Constraint-based Design for Clinical Informatics

    Wed Sep 24, 2014 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm | Wednesday, Sep. 24, 2014, 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. PDT Keith Butler, HCDE Research Scientist Principal September 24, 2014 4:30–5:20 p.m. Mary Gates Hall (MGH), room 241 Improving the way healthcare can be performed by clinicians is a fundamental goal of health information technology (HIT). The industry’s record, however, suffers from an erratic, hit-or-miss reputation that risks patient safety, care disruption, and undermines efficiency gains needed to control cost. Standard deign methods, such as iterative prototyping and usability testing, were adequate for applications used in offices and homes but never intended for health/safety-critical domains. This talk will introduce a theory of Constraint-Based Design (CBD) for interactive systems that partitions principle design influences into independent factors and their relative importance. The talk will illustrate how CBD has been applied to HIT systems to design measurable improvements for primary care and MS care. The talk will conclude with research directions that include model-checking for verification of interactive systems for clinical care. About the Speaker Keith Butler is a Principal Research Scientist in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering, and the PI for AHRQ’s project on workflow modeling for clinical health IT. He is one of the originators of the field of usability engineering, lead author of the ISO standard for usability testing that was recently adapted for EHR certification, and a member of NASA’s standing research review panel on space human factors. Before joining UW he was a Technical Fellow in Boeing Math & Computing Technology, and Director of Future Products and Architecture in Microsoft Global Services Automation.

  • Oct 1: HCDE speaker: A Model of Coordinated Action (MoCA)

    Wed Oct 1, 2014 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm | Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014, 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. PDT As computerized technologies and the practices they support continue to grow in diversity, ubiquity, complexity, and scale, the number and type of research topics related to the study of collaborative systems have simultaneously continued to proliferate. It has become increasingly urgent to find ways to describe the problem space of practitioners and researchers in Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). If we are designing to support coordinated action we should know more about what coordinated action is, and furthermore, we should have better ways to talk about the variations among them. In this way, we might get closer to understanding what it means to design for sociotechnical systems that can be simultaneously socially and technically complex and are subject to frequent changes from both within and without. A conceptual grounding—e.g. theoretical framework—is needed to help us define and describe what it is that the field of CSCW actually studies. In order to further discussions in our field, this talk reviews current models of CSCW and then introduces a new conceptual model, the Model of Coordinated Action (MoCA). The practical implications of MoCA are that it may provide a shared way to find and talk about what we study in CSCW despite its electrifying and daunting diversity. About the Speaker Dr. Charlotte P. Lee is an Associate Professor in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering at the University of Washington and Director of the Computer Supported Collaboration Laboratory. She has a B.A. in Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Ph.D in Information Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Lee’s research is in the field of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) with a focus on studying cyberinfrastructure development as a way to understanding highly dynamic, emergent collaborations.  Dr. Lee has been awarded a Google Research Award for her work on online calendar sharing in intimate relationships and has also been awarded one NIH grant, and five NSF-funded grants that study aspects of collaboration in the development of cyberinfrastructure, including a National Science Foundation CAREER Award for “junior faculty who exemplify the role of outstanding teacher-scholars” awarded in 2010.

  • Oct 8: HCDE Speaker: Rumors on Social Media after Disasters

    Wed Oct 8, 2014 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm | Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014, 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. PDT Social media use is becoming an established feature of disaster response. People, including emergency responders and affected individuals, are increasingly turning to available platforms to seek and share information during major events like natural disasters, extreme weather events and political uprisings. These new information-sharing behaviors are accompanied by new opportunities for disaster response, as well as new challenges, including the rapid spread of misinformation. This talk provides some background on crisis informatics, an emerging field of research that examines information communication technology (ICT) use during disaster events, and then shifts to focus specifically on how rumors spread online after disaster events—and how the online crowd "works" to challenge and correct misinformation. About the Speaker Kate Starbird is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering and Director of the Emerging Capacities of Mass Participation Laboratory. The emCOMP Lab examines the dynamics of and applications for massive interaction facilitated by social media and other online platforms. The lab also considers how connected, collective intelligence manifests and can be supported within contexts of emergency and humanitarian response, political disruption, and other events of large-scale interest. Starbird received her PhD in 2012 from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Among her accomplishments, Starbird co-created "Tweak the Tweet," utilizing the Twitter platform as a two-way communication method to get on-the-ground help where it is most needed. This was first deployed just in time for the Haiti earthquake disaster. Starbird is the Principal Investigator (PI) for a National Science Foundation (NSF) two-year grant for the project, "Detecting Misinformation Flows in Social Media Spaces During Crisis Events."

  • Oct 22: HCDE Speaker: More Value from Personal Informatics Data

    Wed Oct 22, 2014 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm | Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014, 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. PDT We have entered the age of personal informatics, with connected devices and mobile applications that enable people to track a variety information. Health and wellness data is one of the most commonly tracked data types; over 69% of United States adults currently track a health factor, with 14% using technology to so do (Pew). These numbers will continue to rise, as new sensing removes barriers to long-term, ubiquitous personal monitoring. Less clear, however, how much value people gain from these additional tracking abilities. More data creates more opportunities for understanding one’s behavior or symptoms, the factors which influence it, and opportunities for improvement. Review of this data to produce actionable information, however, can be challenging for individual trackers, the support networks with whom they share it, and their medical team. In this talk, I will discuss early efforts and challenges to helping people gain more value from their personal informatics data, both individually and in collaboration with others. About the Speaker Sean Munson is an Assistant Professor at the UW's Department of Human Centered Design and Engineering and a member of the dub group. He studies the use of software to support behavior changes. His work primarily focuses on the domains of political news and opinion access and health and wellness. Sean completed a BS in Engineering with a concentration in Systems Design at Olin College in 2006 and his PhD at the University of Michigan's School of Information in 2012. He has been a political blogger and, while working at Boeing, designed concepts for future passenger airplane interiors.

  • Nov 12: Designing Tailored Motivators with Gary Hsieh

    Wed Nov 12, 2014 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm | Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014, 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. PST Designing effective incentives is a challenge across many domains, from attracting technology users to nudging behavior change to compensating study participants. Unfortunately, current designs often employ a one-incentive-fits-all approach, assuming that one single reward would work sufficiently for everyone. This overlooks the fact that people are heterogenously motivated; people do not all hold the same values and have the same needs. A single reward, therefore, may not appeal to everyone, and it could also undermine diversity by attracting only certain types of people to participate. An alternative design is to offer individually tailored motivators. While this idea works well in theory, there are many unanswered research questions for this approach to be a viable option. What motivators should we use? Under what circumstances should we use these motivators? How do we design these systems to provide sufficient user control. In this talk, Hsieh will discuss early efforts and challenges in developing tailored motivators. About the Speaker Gary Hsieh is an Assistant Professor of Human Centered Design & Engineering at the University of Washington. His research focuses on studying, designing, and developing technologies that enable people to interact in ways that are efficient and welfare-improving. He was previously an Assistant Professor in Communication and Information Studies at Michigan State University and has conducted research at multiple industry research labs, including Microsoft, IBM, Intel, and Fuji-Xerox. He received his PhD from the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University and his BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of California, Berkeley. He is a recipient of the NSF Career Award.
