Design of human-computer interfaces in health care, based on task analysis and theories of human cognition
1992 (English)In: Proceedings of MEDINFO 92, 1992Conference paper (Refereed)
Computer supported work activities in health care are very sensitive to disturbances caused by badly designed user interfaces. A methodology for experimental design of systems and interfaces is described, based on task and expectation analysis. Knowledge from perceptual and cognitive psychology let us understand more about human information handling and about requirements for design of efficient user interfaces. An example of how the methods and design principles can be used in practise is given.
