Workshop: Technology for Co-working on Health and Active Life

Technology → Ergonomics → OH → health care → AAL

 June 13th 2024, Virtual (link will be provided)

The workshop's subject is to bring together researchers and practitioners of several disciplines working on concepts to enable the transition of European societies towards healthy and active lives.

Topics of the workshop:

  • Introduction to the concept (format of collaboration)
  • Actual challenges in healthcare
  • “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)
  • Integrated learning Approach 
  • Joint Cognitive Systems (JCS) Approach 
  • Relevant aspects of Ergonomics
  • Management of change

Overall Subject: The healthcare systems in the European regions are in transition. The key to successfully implementing this demanding change is the wise integration of innovative processes in primary care, competence improvement strategies, and the use of technology.

Together with partners in research and practice, KOHS is 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 address actual demands in health care (secondary users), applications of technology to meet these demands, technology (focusing on open platforms, open source), and integrated processes to enable co-working on the health of primary users and the health of health care workers (challenges for health care organisations and occupational health (tertiary users)).
