D&S fellow Diana Freed co-authored a health technology piece that introduces an approach called YADL (Your Activities of Daily Living), which ‘uses images of ADLs and personalization to improve survey efficiency and the patient-experience’.
It offers several potential benefits: wider coverage
of ADLs, improved engagement, and accurate capture of individual
health situations. In this paper, we discuss our system design
and the wide applicability of the design process for survey tools
in healthcare and beyond. Interactions with with a small number
of patients with Arthritis throughout the design process have been
promising and we share detailed insights.
