Everyone seems to be using health apps these days: from simple medication reminders to habit formation apps that help us to change our behavior and be healthy. But while at the first sight such apps meet a certain need and address a specific problem, at the same time they seem to lack any understanding of how people behave.
Katarzyna Stawarz, a researcher and UX designer at the UCL Interaction Centre in London, will talk about how people remember medications and how reminder apps neglect that behaviour; how habits form and how habit formation apps ignore that process; and what we could do to design better health apps in the future. We're lucky to have someone who blends design experience, business undersatnding, and deep research practice.
