Cultural variations in how consumers interact with healthcare websites

Hello all-

My company is trying to convince a client that there is tangible value
in doing research on the differences in how consumers in different parts
of the world interact with healthcare-related websites. For example, in
the US consumers often question the trustworthiness of a manufacturer's
website about its own products, but may place a lot of trust in an open
forum of other patients and consumers who are not doctors and are not
required to validate their opinions and observations.

CRM system for a UX team?

Thanks to everyone who responded to my earlier question. Here's another one.

Has anyone had experience with using a CRM system (preferably a free
or low-cost one) to manage customer/user contacts within a UX team?

My team currently uses an Excel spreadsheet stored in a shared
repository. Keeping it up to date is a painful experience. I'm
thinking that there must be a better way.

[Event] IxDA Dublin, Ireland: February Meeting %u2013 Mon 16th, 6:30 - 8:30pm

Hi Seamus,

I'm new to the site - but it was great to see a post from dublin at
the top of the list when I logged on.

I have done quite a bit of work with personas and I am acquainted
with the benefits and pitfalls. I completed an MA research project on
the effectiveness of using personas in the product design field last

I will definitely try to make it along.

A Study on how End User's perceive change

Hey guys,
I am planning a study which aims to answer how end user's perceive change.
'Change' here could be upgrading of a software ( e.g. MS word 2003 to MS
word 2007), OS, switching between similar applications (e.g. MS Expression
Web to Dreamweaver) etc. I am currently trying to find similar studies from
backgrounds such as Behavioral Psych, Computer Science, HCI etc.

Has anyone conducted similar studies? Could anyone point me to any
studies/books/papers that could be related to this?

MS-HCI @ Georgia Tech

Determining Location

We have several features on our site that are location dependent -- as one
example, we only sell certain products in certain regions. Currently, we ask
people to click on a region in a world map.

We're currently looking at MaxMind:


(was that accurate for you?)

We aren't thinking of relying solely on the results of that in every
context, just trying to make some smarter display decisions.

Two questions:

1.) Does anyone have any experience using any of these services??
ip2location? Maxmind?
