This five year AHRQ funded project involves an in-depth investigation of the health information needs and management of a diverse group of older adults and their caregivers. Based on the results of extensive qualitative studies (interviews, focus groups, and surveys), we will develop a model of health information management for older adults. The model will help identify key design principles for the future design of information systems to facilitate the successful management of health information by older adults. This project involves collaboration between faculty from the UW Schools of Public Health, Medicine, Nursing and Engineering and King County community agencies serving older adults.
