An increasingly rich range of features and functionality is now available through smart televisions, interactive and immersive multimedia. These new technologies disrupt most of our social and individual attitudes, practices and experiences in everyday life, at home, at work or at school, in transport, etc. What about in hospital and for an aged patient population?
- Television has long been the primary form of in-room entertainment in hospital. However, surprisingly, there has been limited research and practices examining how TV can help improve care environment tailored to patients. Using new interactive TV screen and media contents, patients and care-givers can watch both clinical and non-clinical channels, make requests across the spectrum of hospital services, view appointment, use the internet- among other features. Along with significant benefit, the new technology brings new challenges and considerations for adjusted or new practices in hospital. Part of the workshop aims to address how new TV and media contents can improve the in-hospital experience of in-patients, caregivers, and medical staffs.
- With ageing population, epidemiology studies report increases of both DLMA and Glaucoma cases, with consequences of loss of either peripheral or foveal vision. At the age of immersive media stressing more and more visual field, such visual impairments must be better understood to avoid digital exclusion and adopt ad hoc mitigation solutions.
This workshop will present a selection of high quality position papers addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Bedside learning using interactive and personalized
TV and media contents
- Co-design methodologies (with health care professionals and patients) for interaction design in hospital
- New multimedia and visual experiences (interactive visit, serious-games, immersive and interactive environments…) to improve in-patient experience (social engagement between in-patients and medical staffs, in-patient well-being and empowerment, better acceptation of medical acts and treatments…)
- Multimedia and interactive services to assess in-patient physical and mental state
- Studies of foveal and peripheral vision impairments, impact on immersive media experience
- New TVX for visually impaired and elderly populations
- UX and QoE studies for Care TVX
We encourage short papers (maximum 4 pages) and recommend demos or videos to accompany the presentation. If you want to contribute to CareTVX 2018, please submit your short paper via EasyChair, using the SIGHCHI template. Workshop contributions will be published in the TVX 2018 Adjunct Proceedings.
