Developing a Web-based Interface of Sensor Technologies for Interventionists

The widespread adoption and growth of the consumer sensor technologies, including wearable and in-home sensors, present an opportunity for ambient monitoring of activities of daily living (ADLs) for health and behavioral intervention. Yet no open-source systems exist to incorporate disparate sensor technologies for health care professionals and researchers to monitor client/patient ADLs and assist individuals with health and wellness goals. The purpose of this study is to design and develop a data interface, using a user-centered co-design approach, for health care professionals. Informatics and design researchers engage with nurses, occupational therapists, and social workers to create a user-friendly and web-based interface for understanding patterns of behavior and identifying behavior deviations for intervention.
