PhD - Bridging Service Design and Interaction Design for Future Health Services

About AHO

The Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) is a specialized university and a leading international architecture and design school that provides education within architecture, landscape architecture, urbanism and design. AHOs fields of knowledge focus on design in all scales, objects, buildings, urban areas and landscaping. AHO is organized into four institutes, and has approx. 700 students and 145 employees. 

The Institute of Design adopts a broad, holistic approach to design that emphasizes the relevance and importance of design within our contemporary society. It teaches and researches within the fields of industrial design, interaction design, service design, and systems oriented design, as well as themes that go across these disciplines, such as healthcare or maritime industry. Our perspective is that good design creates aesthetic and functional products, services, and experiences that delight and improve the lives of their users.

About the position

  • Service design and interaction design are rapidly growing domains in design and are increasingly present in commercial and public sectors in Norway. A design research PhD position is now available to further develop the service design/interaction design research field within the area of healthcare. The position is centered in practice oriented design inquiry using designing as a means to research.  
  • The position is a part of Centre for Connected Care (C3) which is an 8 year initiative funded by the Norwegian Research Council, commercial organizations and by research partners. C3 aims to accelerate adoption and diffusion of patient-centric innovations that change patient pathways and delivery systems, empower patients and increase growth in the health care industry.  

Reserarch framework

We invite applications, together with formal research doctoral project descriptions, for study within the following area: 

  •  Service design, co-creation, patient experience and interactions with touch-point ecologies  

The patient journey is becoming increasingly digital, and the number and type of digital touch-points are exploding. In some situations, interaction may be focused around one main integrative touch-point (for example an app), but increasingly we see an ecology of touch-points that have to seamlessly work together to form the desired patient experience. This ecology may include touch-points of generic character, such as an app, e-mail or a web page, but can also include specialized touch-points such as home monitoring technology, e-therapy, medical equipment etc. How should a service designer work with touch-point ecologies to co-create a seamless patient experience, and what are the roles of people in such a journey?  
Sensors, smart-phones, cloud computing and communities of knowledge are coming together in the quantified self to collect data and transform this data into insights offering guidance and even diagnoses about an individual’s health situation. This primarily digital and patient-initiated monitoring can improve and radically challenge todays health service. In what ways could, and should, a health providers engage themselves in this area? What role can interaction design play in supporting the development, delivery and experience of such services? 
New delivery models for health and social care services are emerging, enabled by digital technology, patient and citizen empowerment and structural changes in the care delivery. Concepts of home hospital and remote care services are being developed and implemented for many patient groups. C3 is targeting innovation for co-production of services at home and customized to the lives people live and the communities they are part of that enables joint contribution to health. 

Proposed research themes

1. Design of touch-point ecologies. Digital touch-points for future health will most likely be highly specialized, individual and based upon the health seekers personal data and context. We would like to explore models to improve patient health, patient-centric healthcare services and co-production of health. How can one design solutions that are perceived by the patient as individual, yet at the same time integrate them into large scale service platforms?   
 
2. Development of a patient-centric Innovation Lab. AHO wishes to develop a shared resource, an Innovation Lab, that builds upon the Mindlab model from Denmark, the Aalto DesignFactory and Kent County Councils Social Innovation Lab (SILK). This could lead to the further development of existing living lab collaborations as a means of supporting innovation activities, or it could operate more as a strategic design lab for innovation between new constellations of public and private actors to address more radical and systemic transformations for service co-productions. The Lab will be developed and used in close collaboration with commercial partners, particularly new start-up partners brought into C3  through Oslo Medtech (a cluster of 150 medical companies).  
 
We are interested in doctoral design researchers who are motivated to apply, design and critique the design of services for the public sector. We further invite proposals with a main focus on bridging relations between Service Design and Interaction Design. The doctoral researcher in this new position will work closely as part of a service design team within C3 together with partner researchers in healthcare, business and ICT.   
The Service Design research group at AHO is part of our Centre for Design Research (CDR) and draws on a strong tradition of research by design. The advertised position is part of the wider design and research strategy of the Institute for Design at AHO that encompasses the CDR (www.designresearch.no), the Centre for Service Innovation http://csi.nhh.no, and DOT (Design for public service - https://www.facebook.com/designforoffentligetjenester).
