Federal standards body is looking for some health IT usability experts

Last week I was approached but one of the federal government standards bodies that is putting together some advice and standards around healthcare IT usability. They are seeking usability experts to join people like me on their advisory council. If you’re a healthcare IT usability specialist and would like to be nominated to join the experts panel please drop me a note or leave your name and contact information as a comment on my blog.

  1. I would be willing to help, having recently published an article in the Radiology Management (a peer-reviewed journal), May/June 2009 issue, entitled “An effective approach for choosing an Electronic Health Record”.

    You might also want to contact User Centric, which foucses on EHR usability as their main type of consultation (see http://www.usercentric.com/publications/2009/02/05/how-select-electronic-health-record-system-healthcare-professionals-can-use).

  2. My team has been involved in usability for multiple government contracts over the past 5 years. I would welcome the opportunity to be involved in this group to push for much needed improvement that has lacked buy-in in the past.
    Thanks!

  3. I’ m experienced in implementation, user training design and business analysis of Healthcare information systems which encompasses LIS,RIS & EMR. I am very passionate about improvements in usability area of the Healthcare information system and have extensive experience working with Healthcare organizations and vendors. I would like to contribute in this area for realization of the ultimate goal which is improvements in patient care.

  4. I would be happy to help. I am an information architect and usability specialist. I also have experience in hospital workflow reengineering. Feel free to contact me at my email address.

  5. I can’t think of anything more integral to making HIT successful and I’d love to be a part of it.

    I’ve spent the majority of the last six years spearheading usability studies and beta tests on software applications for B2B, B2C, and patient-based research projects.
