Please join CPSI as we conclude our Human Factors webinar series with our final presentation Collaborative "Spaces" and Health Information Technology Design

As more healthcare delivery is provided via collaborative healthcare teams, there is a need to understand how collaboration works so we can better design health information technology (HIT) to support it. Designing for collaboration introduces multiple types of challenges including data, process, social, organizational and workflow issues. While social innovations such as Web 2.0 provide great potential for supporting collaborative healthcare delivery, we know that technology must be aligned with the various contexts or "spaces" where it is used. While the need for collaboration is well stated, far less thought is given to how to design HIT to support collaboration spaces.


This webinar will describe the evolving relationship between collaboration and HIT and discuss implications for the design and evaluation of HIT to support collaboration.

At the end of this session, attendees will be able to identify:

  1. The definition and models of collaborative care delivery
  2. The challenges in HIT design to support collaborative care delivery
  3. The HIT design to support collaboration including usability and workflow implications

Craig Kuziemsky, Professor, Telfer School of Management, University of Ottawa 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.

Dr. Kuziemsky was awarded the University of Ottawa 2013 Young Researcher Award in Social Sciences and Humanities. He is the current chair of the International Medical Informatics Association Working Group on Organizational and Social Issues. He is the Principal Investigator for a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Discovery Grant (2014-2019) to study contextual aspects of collaborative teamwork in order to better model and develop technologies to support different contexts of collaboration.
