Two papers accepted at HEALTHINF 2017

These position papers showcase the diverse and impactful work that we do in applied artificial intelligence.

Designing a Social Machine for the Heart Manual Service by Vanessa Hanschke, Areti Manataki, Cristina-Adriana Alexandru, Petros Papapanagiotou, Carolyn Deighan, Louise Taylor and Dave Robertson

In collaboration with the Heart Manual Department, this project is an attempt at finding suitable methods for designing social machines in a healthcare context. It suggests that adopting a participatory approach where stakeholders are active, equal participants throughout the design process leads to a more usable, likeable, and thus more successful social machine.


A Step Towards the Standardisation of HIV Care Practices by Cristina-Adriana Alexandru, Dan Clutterbuck, Petros Papapanagiotou, Jacques Fleuriot and Areti Manataki

Recent improvements to HIV care at the NHS Lothian Board have concentrated on a re-mapping of the processes involved in their Integrated Care Pathway. Our work aims to extend and enhance this mapping by formalising care workflows using our logic-based tool WorkflowFM. This paper presents our progress to date in terms of methodology and initial findings concerning actors, resources and workflows involved in the first 3 months of HIV care for the Chalmers Sexual Health Centre.
