Numeracy skill level of patients has great influence on their preferences and priorities for the treatment options concerning their healthcare. There have been different methods for assessment of numeracy skill in healthcare domain. In our previous research we proposed a new Confidence-based Patient Numeracy Assessment (C-PNA) method.

Pattern-Based Statechart Modeling Approach for Medical Best Practice Guidelines - A Case Study
Abstract: 
Improving effectiveness and safety of patient care is an ultimate objective for medical cyber-physical systems. Many medical best practice guidelines exist in the format of hospital handbooks which are often lengthy and difficult for medical staff to remember and apply clinically. Statechart is an effective tool to model medical guidelines and enables clinical validation with medical staffs. However, some advanced statechart elements could result in high cost, such as low understandability, high difficulty in clinical validation, formal verification, and failure trace back.

Using Affective Computing to automatically adapt serious games for rehabilitation
Abstract: 
Although many studies investigate the automatic adaptation in serious games with the goal to improve the user's motivation, the most part of Affective Computing approaches requires a high development cost and usually does not consider an intervention of health professionals in the control of adaptations that will be executed in a game. This paper describes an approach to enable affective adaptation in serious games for motor rehabilitation with the involvement of physiotherapists.
