The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society Presents 12th Symposium on Health Care
This is the 12th International Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Healthcare
By: Human Factors and Ergonomics Society
"This event will highlight how technology is rapidly and directly evolving the health care system and how leveraging human factors can help avoid critical medical errors and improve patient and provider well-being,"
The keynote address will be given by Peter Weinstock, MD, Ph.D., Executive Program Director of Immersive Design Systems and Anesthesiology Endowed Chair in Pediatric Simulation at Boston Children's Hospital. The title of his address is "Immersive Technologies to Transform Training, Safety, and Experience in Health Care" and will be held on Monday, March 27, from 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. in Grand Caribbean 6.
Other sessions will include several topics, including virtual reality in health care, digital health, artificial intelligence (AI), connected medical devices, simulations to improve design, training and coordination, and much more. The symposium will also announce the winners of the student design competition for Mobile Health Applications for End Users. Entries showcase the application of human factors/ergonomics (HF/E) methods and design principles for the design of a mobile health application for end users and how an HF/E approach to such an application can lead to a useful, usable, and satisfying user experience while simultaneously improving patient outcomes such as knowledge, safety, adherence, or health.
For those who may be unable to join the event in Orlando in person, more than 30 Sessions in the Medical and Drug-Delivery Device and Digital Health tracks as well as the keynote address will be live-streamed from the event and available as session recordings at a later date.
