Wai-Tat Fu and Dan Morrow

The project aims at improving usability of EHR systems and Internet patient portals in facilitating synchronous and asynchronous communication between doctors and patients, clinic activities, information management, and other patient care goals. Areas of focus include designs of better EHR-based forms that support timely exchange of clinical information to facilitate patient diagnoses, better presentation and visualization of numerical measures to improve perception of risks, and better presentation and explanation of medical terms and concepts to facilitate health-related decisions.
