Chart Program Supports Oneclick Chat Platforms User Optimization for Older Adults

Dr. Wendy Rogers, Shahid and Ann Carlson Khan Professor of Applied Health Sciences in the Department of Kinesiology and Community Health, and Dr. Raksha Mudar, associate professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science, will partner with OneClick.chat on a study of the web-based video chat platform’s ability to enhance social connections and engagement among older adults. OneClick.chat was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research grant from the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Aging. OneClick.chat’s CEO Dillon Myers says the research team will pilot the platform with adults over the age of 70, including adults with early signs of cognitive impairment. His goal is to understand the unique design needs of older adults at risk for social isolation in order to adapt OneClick.chat’s video technology.
