Special Seminar

 

You are invited to a Special Seminar on Friday, December 9, 2016 given by Yalini Senathirajah, PhD, Assistant Professor, Medical Informatics, SUNY Downstate Medical Center at 11:00 AM titled “Clinician in the Driver's Seat- new approaches to health information technologies”. 

This seminar will be held at the Department of Biomedical Informatics.

Abstract:                 

Health IT and particularly the electronic health record must meet many needs unique to healthcare, and this has typically been fraught with difficulty.  This includes assisting work that is extremely complex, high-stakes, collaborative, rapidly changing, and with many stakeholders. Ongoing protests by provider groups at the national level have called attention to the difficulties in current systems, particularly with regard to safety and usability.

This talk will describe a different, user-composable approach to the design of healthcare software, with details about our AHRQ-funded studies examining its advantages of human-computer interaction and cognition, safety, fit to task, communication/collaboration, and rapid change to meet emergent needs.  It will also describe opportunities for future work which may be conducted at Pittsburgh.

Dr. Senathirajah's lab website is at http://www.ehr2.org/newsite2/new - papers and details are available there.
