ISE Student Wins Student Mobile Health Design Competition

ISE graduate student, Marisa Grayson, recently won the Student Mobile Health Design Competition at this year’s International Human Factors in Healthcare Symposium. Entries from multiple countries were narrowed down to three finalists, which were awarded paid admission to the symposium and a small cash award. Marisa competed in the finals with students from San Jose State and Johns Hopkins. Her presentation of the process and the ultimate design was excellent, and capped off an impressive day, where there were three refereed presentations throughout the day. Marisa was announced the winner during the evening’s poster session, which brings with it an additional $500 award. 

The app, RecorDr, is part of a collaboration between Drs. Mike Rayo and Clara Lee, a plastic surgeon at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. They are working together to better understand physicians' and patients’ roles in decision-making on breast cancer surgery options. RecorDr allows the patients to record and annotate their conversations with physicians, and securely send  the annotated recordings to the research team. This, in effect, deputizes patients and increases the reach of their research, serving as a platform for this and future studies. The app is currently in the Google Play store, and is anticipated to be in the Apple App Store in the next 1-2 weeks.

Marisa is pursuing an MS in cognitive engineering, and is advised by Dr. David Woods and Dr. Mike Rayo.
