At Every Step, Factor in Humans – Human Factors in HIT Design w Janey Barnes, part 3

The final part of our conversation with Dr. Janey Barnes (founder, User View). Dr. Barnes discusses how health IT platforms compare to those in other fields (and how pharma software is like lottery software); how hands-on training helps achieve stronger EHR functionality, satisfaction and regulatory fulfillment; and how a human-centered approach at every step, from implementation to daily use, creates systems that fit each unique organization.
