Interfaces to Medical Information Systems: Supporting Evidence Based Practice
Find this in a Library
This paper describes the development and initial evaluation of an interface to medical information related to cardiovascular health. The interface, which is designed to be used on a touch tablet, uses principles of Ecological Interface Design to create an interface that addresses cardiovascular health at multiple functional levels: specific test values, general state of health based on a published epidemiological model of risk, and treatment guides based on published standards of best practice. The evaluation focused on the value of providing multiple functional levels for making judgments about cardiovascular risk.
