Toward a Unified Metadata Schema for Ecological Momentary Assessment with Voice-First Virtual Assistants

CUI 2021 We designed a novel unified metadata schema to enable Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), user experience (UX), and behavioral health researchers to rapidly prototype Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) data collection applications on different voice-first smart devices with built-in IVAs.

ARTEMIS: A Collaborative Mixed-Reality System for Immersive Surgical Telementoring

CHI 2021In this paper, we describe ARTEMIS' design process with a summary of specific user goals ARTEMIS addresses. We also describe the system implementation and show an early validation of how the system addresses user goals.

Developing a Healthcare Equity Tool: Combining Technology and Stakeholder Engagement to Uncover Hidden Bias in Patient-Provider Interactions

Academic Health 2021 Hidden biases in patient-provider interactions can result in poor communication in clinical interactions and healthcare disparities. The UnBIASED Research Project is combining stakeholder engagement with computational sensing to automatically detect hidden biases and provide automated feedback on communication quality during clinical encounters. Early insights from stakeholder engagement highlight the importance of nonverbal communication as social signals of hidden bias.

Do You Really Need to Know Where “That” Is? Enhancing Support for Referencing in Collaborative Mixed Reality Environments

CHI 2021 This paper presents a 2x2 mixed factorial experiment that explores the effects of providing spatial information and system-generated guidance to task objects. It also investigates the effects of such guidance on the remote collaborators need for spatial information.

Facilitating Remote Design Thinking Workshops in Healthcare: the Case of Contouring in Radiation Oncology

CHI 2021 Co-location matters, especially when running collaborative design thinking workshops. What if participation cannot occur in person? How can we conduct these workshops remotely?

How might an intelligent voice assistant address older adults' health-related needs?

JAGS 2021 As the elderly population and associated number of persons with dementia increase, so does the need for decision-making capacity assessments (DMCAs). Many healthcare professionals (HCPs), however, do not feel prepared to conduct DMCAs. We have provided 4-h DMCA workshops to HCPs since 2006 and offered physicians either a 3-h or 2-day DMCA workshop from 2013 to present. We evaluated the effectiveness of the workshops on self-reported key concepts of capacit

Understanding Barriers and Design Opportunities to Improve Healthcare and QOL for Older Adults through Voice Assistants

ASSETS 2021 In this paper we focus on the processes of care delivery and QOL enhancements for older adults as a collaborative task between patients and providers. By interviewing 16 older adults living independently or semi–independently and 5 providers, we identified 12 barriers that older adults might encounter during daily routine and while managing health

“It Feels Like I am Talking into a Void”: Understanding Interaction Gaps in Synchronous Online Classrooms

CHI 2021 This paper investigates in-class interactions in synchronous online classrooms when the choice of modality is discretionary, such that students choose when and if they turn on their cameras and microphones
