Abstract

Care processes in hospitals require intensive communication between stakeholders, interaction with technology and documentation of processes. In any of these cases, text plays a central role. Variable and adaptive text input methods can enhance workflows approaching quality, time, hygiene and resource management. Touchless technologies and speech input offer promising new input methods. Especially, the Internet of Things (IoT) offers plenty of opportunities for the separation of input and output interaction devices, and the adaptive and context-aware provision of wirelessly connected compositions of smart devices (IoT-ensembles) fulfilling the specific needs of all relevant stakeholders of the care process.
