Senior Anthropologist / Health IT Lab

Sarah Maria Rasch

The focus of my work is my interest in how people interact with each other, with the world and with technology. I examine this by bringing my anthropological perspectives and methods into play in user-driven innovation processes.

I am involved in projects to develop IT for healthcare professionals and citizens in the health sector resulting in greater security for citizens and optimized workflows for the healthcare staff. I appreciate the interdisciplinary collaboration on user-driven innovation processes, I have with my colleagues from the Alexandra Institute and external partners such as engineers, computer scientists, clinicians and system architects.

I am interested in the users’ needs with regard to context and how technology may be helpful rescource rather than an obstacle in their everyday lives, and my job is to illustrate this through ethnographic methods.
