Abstract

Ubiquitous computing technologies have the potential to revolutionize the support of chronic health conditions: improving quality of life, reducing costs and optimizing health outcomes. Wearable networks of connected devices and sensors offer the prospect of personalized support and contextually aware advice, for those with specific chronic health conditions. However, there are many obstacles and concerns that need to be addressed before the full potential can be realized. This workshop aims to bring together those interested in developing ubiquitous health management and related personal decision support systems to identify how gaps in knowledge can be addressed and design practices can be improved to better support key communities and contexts of use in this rapidly growing field.
