About the Seminar

Population dynamics and emergent technologies present a powerful opportunity for technology application in healthcare services.  However, little is known about how to create sustainable ehealth services.  By nature, the healthcare domain is characterized by problems with compliance and tensions among stakeholders.  Further, services involve complex interactions that engage people as well as systems within which technology plays an important role.  Creating services that are truly sustainable presents additional challenges.  Traditional development approaches are insufficient to deal with these circumstances.  This surfaces a wide range of issues with associated research opportunities.  This seminar will seek to explore concepts and remove uncertainties towards sustainable ehealth service creation using examples in Chinese contexts.
