We study how technologies influence practices among patients, relatives, and healthcare professionals cross-disciplinarily. Theoretically, we are inspired by approaches such as STS (Science and Technology Studies), practice theory, postphenomenology, and assemblage theory which are focused on the relations between humans and technologies. Our current projects study, from a user perspective, the implementation of telemedicine and artificial intelligence based on the following questions:
- Which consequences are, for users e.g., patients, their relatives, and healthcare professionals, induced by new technology, and how do they alter work procedures, the working environment, and the organization?
- How can we ensure equal access to new technologies and healthcare information systems considering patient diversity?
