Gamification Technology in Healthcare
Venue: Hallam Conference Centre
44 Hallam Street
Date: 25 Sep 2014
Synopsis: This conference will update delegates on the principles of gamification in healthcare and how it can be used in everyday clinical practice to improve outcomes for patients. Through expert sessions and case studies in various clinical areas the conference will enable delegates to implement this new technology to the advantage of patients.
Gamification in healthcare is the application of design principles of computer games to healthcare solutions that work to change patient behaviour in order to attain better health. This makes healthcare personalised and user centred, providing motivation and creating engaging experience.
Multiple projects using the principles of gamification have shown healthcare benefits in a wide variety of conditions – ranging from the common fitness ‘apps’ to more complicated products using sensor technology (e.g. the MS Kinect) to treat specific healthcare problems. While initial pilots are promising, this is a journey that is just beginning as the industry matures.
