Cognitive Informatics for Biomedicine: Human Computer by Vimla L. Patel, Thomas G. Kannampallil, David R. Kaufman

By Vimla L. Patel, Thomas G. Kannampallil, David R. Kaufman

The e-book reviews at the present kingdom on HCI in biomedicine and future health care, targeting the function of human components, sufferer defense good as methodological underpinnings of HCI theories and its software for biomedical informatics. Theories, types and frameworks for human-computer interplay (HCI) were well-known as key individuals for the layout, improvement and use of computer-based platforms. within the scientific area, key issues that clutter the learn panorama of future health info expertise (HIT) are usability, choice help and medical workflow – all of that are affected without delay or in some way by way of the character of HCI. whereas the results of HCI rules for the layout of HIT are said, the adoption of the instruments and strategies between clinicians, informatics researchers and builders of HIT are constrained. there's a normal consensus that HIT has no longer discovered its capability as a device to facilitate medical decision-making, the coordination of care and improves sufferer defense. Embracing sound ideas of iterative layout can yield major dividends. it might additionally increase practitioner’s talents to satisfy “meaningful use” necessities. the aim of the ebook is two-fold: to deal with key gaps at the applicability of theories, types and review frameworks of HCI and human components for examine in biomedical informatics. It highlights the state-of-the-art, drawing from the present learn in HCI. moment, it additionally serves as a graduate point textbook highlighting key subject matters in HCI proper for biomedical informatics, desktop technology and social technology scholars operating within the healthcare area. For tutorial reasons, the publication presents more information and a collection of questions for interactive category dialogue for every part. the aim of those questions is to motivate scholars to use the realized thoughts to genuine global healthcare problems.​

Sample text

In this chapter, we traced the evolution of cognitive theory from the classical informationprocessing approach to external cognition through distributed cognition. The information-processing approach drew extensively on concepts from cognitive psychology and embraced a computational approach to the study of interaction. The MHP theory (Card et al. 1983) provides insight into cognitive processes and provides a predictive model of behavior, albeit one that is limited in scope. Norman’s theory of action (Norman 1986) offers an explanatory account of the challenges involved in using systems.

Significant challenges remain in the domain of health information technology. Although cognitive theory cannot provide all of the answers, it remains a powerful tool for advancing knowledge and furthering the scientific enterprise. 2 Cognition and Human Computer Interaction in Health and Biomedicine 31 Discussion Questions 1. What role can cognitive theory play in HCI research and application? Describe the different kinds of theories that can inform HCI in practice situations. 2. Explain the gulfs of execution and evaluation and how they can be used to inform HCI design.
