The Future of Clinical Data Capture

Announcing the mTuitive Consulting Practice for Human Factors Engineering
mTuitive was founded on core principles that revolve around the science of human factors engineering. From the core xPert system technology to the design of the flexible user interface, the science of human factors engineering is engineered into mTuitive applications. This experience has taught us that while recent, rapid advances in diagnostic technology may provide immeasurable benefit, conversely these advances have exacerbated the need to make them usable by mere mortal human beings, physicians included. More than ever before, the discipline to apply what is known about human capabilities and limitations to the design of products, processes, systems, and work environments is needed. mTuitive co-founder and CTO, Dr. Mark Law, will head up this new division. Mark will combine his human factors training and experience to leverage existing mTuitive xPert systems technology to lead this new initiative. The practice will include the design of all systems having a human interface, including hardware and software with particular focus on system design to improve • • • • • ease of use performance reliability user satisfaction communications between disciplines • • • • • to reduce operator stress training requirements user fatigue product liability operational errors

What is a Human Factors Expert or Ergonomics Expert?
The field of human factors is defined as a multidisciplinary applied science aimed at optimizing the relationship between humans and technology. Human factors practitioners (also known as human factors engineers, human factors psychologists, or ergonomists, depending on the area of specialization) apply data about human behavior, abilities, limitations, and other characteristics to the design of technology, objects, facilities, and environments that people live and work in as well as their tasks and jobs in order to make them effective, productive, safe, and comfortable. Human factors experts typically have advanced education and knowledge of psychology (perception and cognition) and/or physiology, as well as strong experimental and statistical backgrounds. In short, they are practitioner/scientists who are well educated in human behavior and/or physiology. The hallmark of a human factors expert or ergonomics expert is user or task analysis. In general, task analysis is a broad array of techniques and methods aimed at identifying

Task analysis can include activities such as interviews, observations, focus groups, usability testing, card sorting tasks, etc. The aim of task analysis is to understand the user and their tasks in order to aid design and identify flaws in a product or design.
