Intel exec calls for user-centred design of healthcare IT
“HIMSS Summit 2007, the ‘leadership event’ of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, got underway Monday with a plea from an Intel Corporation executive that the healthcare IT vendor community build more â€œelegantâ€ devices that reflect a real understanding of how people use technology,” writes Richard Pizzi in Healthcare IT News.
“Douglas Busch, vice president and chief technology officer at Intel’s Digital Health Group, opened the annual Summit of healthcare IT leaders with a keynote speech explaining his company’s commitment to a ‘user-centered development process’ that took as its point of departure the way healthcare providers interact with information technology. […]
Busch said that it was critical to see how providers behaved in the clinical environment, and not simply to rely on the statements of the physicians and nurses under observation.”
