Wearable Workflow Needs Health Systems Engineering

Presented by HSPI Conference/SHS - Open to All
Sept. 16 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Dr. Chuck Webster, editor and founder, EHR Workflow Inc.

From the original calculator watch to today's Google Glass and smart clothing accessories, wearable technology seeks to weave (sometimes literally!) information technology into everyday life and work, making it pervasive, intimate, and, metaphorically, friction free. Especially promising are applications in healthcare. These, for example, include patient monitors for the well and unwell and wearable user interfaces to health information systems. However, wearable tech will not succeed unless we get its workflows right.

In Ergonomics, The Whole Person Matters

Presented by AEC 2015/GOErgo - Open to All
Oct. 16 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Colin G. Drury, Ph.D., professor emeritus, University at Buffalo, SUNY

As ergonomics/human factors (E/HF) practitioners we have become very skilled in addressing a limited range of problems. Mainly we deal with the physical side of the person at work, reducing injuries and physical stresses on the workforce. 

This webinar provides many examples of where the solution went beyond the physical effects on the workforce to find and address true underlying causes. It shows us how to use a broader range of the tools of our discipline to find better practical solutions to better fit the work to the whole person.
