Date: November 15, Noon ET
Do you work in healthcare technology, technology design or with electronic health information systems? If you do, this call is for you! Human Factors Engineering (HFE) has played a significant role in the design and evaluation of health information technology (HIT) such as electronic health records (EHRs). Human factors research has played a significant role in the ability to design safe and usable HIT across different domains of healthcare delivery. Healthcare delivery models such as collaborative care delivery, patient centered care, and the need to manage chronic illness across time and space have made the design of HIT much more complex. Accordingly, new perspectives on HIT design are needed to ensure we properly support these new care delivery models.
This webinar will describe the relationship between human factors and HIT design. We will examine:
- The historical relationship between human factors and HIT design.
- New models of care delivery and how they impact HIT design.
- Issues with current HIT design from a human factors perspective.
- The evolving role of end users in HIT design processes.
- New approaches to ensuring usability of HIT and effective workflow using HIT.
- Human factors research for 21st century HIT design.
Join us on November 15th at noon ET as Dr.'s Andre Kushniruk and Craig Kuziemsky introduce us to this exciting topic and provide some practical take-aways.
Dr. Andre Kushniruk is Professor and Director of the School of Health Information Science at the University of Victoria in Canada and he is a fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics. Dr. Kushniruk conducts research in a number of areas including usability engineering, electronic health records, evaluation of the effects of information technology and human-computer interaction in healthcare. He has developed innovate methods for conducting video-based usability analyses of health information systems. His work is known internationally as he has published widely in the area of health informatics and he has advised on many national and international committees and projects. Dr. Kushniruk has held academic positions at a number of Canadian universities and worked with many major hospitals and hospitals in Canada, the United States and internationally. He holds undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Biology, as well as a MSc in Computer Science from McMaster University and a PhD in Cognitive Psychology from McGill University.
Dr. Craig Kuziemsky, PhD, is a Full Professor and The University Research Chair in Healthcare Innovation in the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa. He completed his PhD in Health Information Science from the University of Victoria in 2006. Dr. Kuziemsky's research focuses on developing innovative approaches for modeling collaborative healthcare delivery so we can better design information and communication technology (ICT) to support different contexts of collaborative healthcare delivery. His work has defined the structural aspects necessary to support collaboration as well as the behavioral and social processes that shape how the structural components work. His studies of collaboration have used concepts such as complexity theory to understand the nature of collaborative interactions in different healthcare settings (clinical healthcare and public health for disaster management). Dr. Kuziemsky is also interested in the different contexts in which collaboration occurs and how these contexts influence ICT design and evaluation.
