Overall subject:

The health care systems in the European regions are in transition. A wise integration of innovative processes in primary care, competence improvement strategies and the use of technology will be the key for a successful implementation of a demanding change.

Together with partners in research and practice KOHS is being developing a new format of interdisciplinary collaboration. The idea is to foster activities in communities of health care, ergonomics, occupational health and technology research.

Topics of the workshop will be actual demands in health care (secondary users), applications of technology to meet this demands, technology (focusing on open platforms, open source), integrated processes to enable co-working on health of primary users and the health of health care workers (challenges for health care organisations and occupational health (tertiary users).

Topics of the workshop:

  • Introduction to the concept (format of collaboration)
  • Actual challenges in health care
    • “New” approach: Community health care → co-working on health → active life
  • Focus on the AAL domain – concepts of agile development
  • Data – need of data and data structures (open data)
  • Approach of: Integrated learning
  • Approach of: Joint cognitive systems (JCS)
  • Relevant aspects of Ergonomics
  • Management of change
