Human Factors Engineering and Evaluation of interactive Health Technology

The Centre for Human Factors Engineering of interactive Health Technology – HIT lab, initiated by Prof. Monique Jaspers, is a collaborative initiative of the Academic Medical Center - AMC and the Educational Institute of Medical Informatics of the University of Amsterdam - UvA. HIT lab aims at contributing to the optimization of the design of interactive health care technology. HIT lab strives for highly usable interactive healthcare technology optimally supporting health care providers and patients in their daily information processing, decision making and (self) care activities. To achieve this goal a combination of human factors engineering - HFE methods are applied: ethnographic methods, task analyses, work flow analysis, cognitive modelling, cognitive walkthroughs, think aloud user testing, and heuristic usability methods
