Supportive Technology for Managing Relevant Information in the Medical and Nursing Care Field
In Japan, the aging of society has become a serious problem that has increased the importance of being able to flexibly share information between medical and nursing care workers. In this study, we examine the real needs of workers in this field and devise and construct a support system that can assist in collecting and acquiring information of interest at work sites. We additionally consider how to apply psychology to improve information sharing. Our aim is to create an environment that facilitates smoothly sharing information, and we propose a comprehensive system of information sharing toward that aim.
