Lisa Platt is an assistant professor in the College of Design, Construction and Planning. Her research focuses on using artificial intelligence and dynamic modeling to evaluate scenarios for preventative designs that reduce risks to human health. This research includes how phenomena such as climate change, which is having a demonstrated effect on infectious conditions and disease epidemiology, impact community health infrastructure and health system resilience.

Examining risk and crisis communications of government agencies and stakeholders during early-stages of COVID-19 on TwitterComputers in Human Behavior
Yan Wang, et al.
During COVID-19, social media has played an important role for public health agencies and government stakeholders (i.e. actors) to disseminate information regarding situations, risks, and personal protective action inhibiting disease spread. However, there have been notable insufficient, incongruent, and inconsistent communications regarding the pandemic and its risks, which was especially salient at the early stages of the outbreak.
Using a Fuzzy Framework for applying King’s Theory of Goal Attainment to Improve Hospital Acquired Infection ResilienceProceedings of the International Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care
Lisa Sundahl Platt and Ann Fronczek
This article explores techniques for estimating Hospital Acquired Infection prevention potential through strategic nursing care delivery design and applied fuzzy frameworks. To achieve this, it evaluates the use of Fuzzy Logic directed by King’s Theory of Nursing Goal Attainment for developing a HAI resilience process model.
Chapter 9 - Design for ResilienceDesign for Health
Lisa Sundahl Platt
The concepts of “high-reliability organizations” and “patient experience” have become relatively common in health-care operations parlance. However, to date, there have been few scientifically based systematized methods for operationalizing these constructs in the design of systems used in the delivery of human health care. This chapter explores the construct of “resilience” and how it may be used for the identification of outcomes and controllability of systems in health-care environments.
Validating Persuasive Experience (PX) Theory: Preliminary Results of a Case Study on a Corporate Wellness Program’s Web-based Learning InterfacesProceedings of the International Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care
Lisa Sundahl Platt, et al.
The objective of this study is to gain a clearer understanding of the role Persuasive Experience (PX) may play in wellness-oriented Web Based Learning (WBL) platforms in forming abilities to incite healthier lifestyle (or promoting health behavior) in technology-based systems use. Specifically, individual users’ interactions with a particular corporate wellness WBL platform was examined in relation to their State of Mind and Behavior.
Evaluating Persuasiveness of Corporate Wellness Web-based learning interfacesProceedings of the Technology, Mind, and Society
Lisa Sundahl Platt, et al.
There is a clear imperative to discover ways to deliver usable, clear, and persuasive information that will facilitate personal motivation to adopt self-management behaviors, such as increased physical activity that may stem the rise of behavior sensitive conditions, such as Hypertensive cardiovascular disease.
