The objective of this group is to develop research in software fields
that could result in novel software applications for our society. The
group is integrated by researchers with expertise in areas such as human-computer
interaction and medical informatics. The multidisciplinary nature of
the projects proposed by this group require the integration of professionals
and researchers from other fields such as medicine and nursing.

Development of User Interfaces for Electronic Patient Record
focus on the development of user interfaces for electronic patient
record systems. Prototypes of electronic patient record systems are
being developed to study physicians' and nurses' interaction with various
applications and technologies. We have run experiments to study physicians
interacting with text-based, graphical-based and paper based electronic
patient record systems. Most recently with we ran experiments that
involved physicians and nurses interacting with PDAs to access and
update patient records.
