The Proactive Health (ProHealth) Informatics group is internationally renowned for designing, building, and evaluating technologies to empower individuals to better understand, manage, and improve their everyday health.
ProHealth researchers make valuable socio-technical contributions to aging-in-place, health care journeys, personalized consumer health sensing, the internet of things, environmental sensing, urban and rural health, online health communities, and social support. Current projects focus on women’s health, older adults, stigmatized populations, chronic illness, wellness, accessibility, and mental health. We engage populations through user-centered design, participatory design, and novel social computing methods.
Proactive Health Informatics at Indiana University Bloomington has developed a pipeline of training programs for K–12, undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers to develop the next generation of innovators and scholars.See faculty in proactive health
