"Moving care into the home: reimagining mHealth, telecare and selfcare.";
Talk: Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland (invited); 2018-10-25.

English abstract:
Technology is seen as the critical enabler for moving care out of clinical settings into patients´ hands and homes, for empowering people to be active in their own health and well-being and for managing people with chronic conditions in the community. This presents a radically different design space for health IT and for health practice; it fundamentally challenges our notions of patient, clinician, care and home and the roles that technology can play. I will reflect on experiences to date in delivering these new health technologies, variably under labels such as mHealth, telecare and selfcare, and ask how we can re-imagine these technologies to better fit into our lives and deliver value to both the people who use them and their care providers.
