Research Projects: 

Enhancing Patient-Clinician Communication through Self-Monitoring Data Sharing

Principal Investigator: Eun Kyoung Choe
Investigator:
Research Area:

There is a need for improved self-monitoring data sharing between patients and clinicians because the types of data from self-monitoring–physical activity, sleep, food, etc.–provide great insights into individuals’ health management, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment plan.

Advancing Personal Informatics through Semi-Automated Tracking

Principal Investigator: Eun Kyoung Choe
Investigator:
Research Area:

Self-monitoring for older adults and surgical patients can be difficult but beneficial–increased awareness, reduced negative behaviors, goal setting. This research looks at whether combining manual and automatic tracking (semi-automated tracking) can promote user engagement while reducing user burden for the best data collection.
