Health Kiosk Project

Technology & Aging

Health Kiosk Judith Matthews, PhD  ·  Principal Investigator

A major research project led by the Gerontology Program focuses on how and why community-residing older adults, particularly those with limited access to personal computers and mobile devices, use multi-user health kiosks located in congregate settings to self-monitor and manage several aspects of their health. In addition to tracking user engagement with the assessment and intervention features of the kiosk, the project explores health services use during the 18 months of study participation and promotes patient/provider communication regarding personal health and family caregiving concerns. This project is supported by the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research and involves multidisciplinary collaboration among researchers from several universities in the fields of health professions, social sciences, engineering, computer science, and informatics.
