Interaction design for healthcare

This is an interesting article by Doug LeMoine, looking at the design challenges facing healthcare information systems. Maybe a bit techy for me as a humble (?) graphic designer, but some useful insights all the same.

It concludes: "While many domains can be considered proving grounds for workflow automation, healthcare is more accurately described as a battleground. At the most general level, effective design for healthcare anticipates the needs inherent in the workflows of doctors, nurses, and other practitioners. The same can be said in many other domains, but healthcare workflows are characterized by a unique constellation of challenges stemming from the usage environment, constraints of regulations, and the ever-present pressure on practitioners to maintain the highest standard of care."
