AMIA 2012: Using a Medical Simulation Center as a Usability Laboratory for Healthcare Information Technology

ABSTRACT: The use of medical simulation centers for clinical education is increasing. Health information technology (HIT) systems can be incorporated into simulation scenarios for usability testing as well as training and evaluation. We describe our pilot experience using a medical simulation center to study the usability of an emergency department electronic documentation system. Our early experience suggests that adding HIT to clinical simulation scenarios is feasible.
