Sparking Synergies: Bringing Research and Practice Together @ ASIST '05 (ASIS&T 2005)
Westin Charlotte, Charlotte, North Carolina, October 28 - November 2, 2005


Access to health information is an important objective for consumers and health professionals alike, yet various obstacles threaten to prevent users from finding the information they seek. Both researchers and practitioners are working to understand how various user groups seek for health information and how user interfaces may be improved to support these information-seeking behaviors. Panelists will report on system evaluation efforts and empirical studies of user behavior and will demonstrate innovative user interfaces that attempt to provide alternative approaches to health information.
