PaperChain: A Collaborative Healthcare System Grounded in Field Study Work

Wilson, S., Woodward, P. & Randell, R. (2010). PaperChain: A Collaborative Healthcare System Grounded in Field Study Work. Paper presented at the Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH), 11 April 2010, Atlanta, Georgia.


In this extended abstract we summarise our recent experiences of designing and deploying PaperChain, a system to support real-time information sharing in healthcare work. A guiding principle has been the development of a deep understanding of the work as the foundation for effective system design. We summarise the field work that motivated the development of PaperChain, some of the key findings and the resulting system. We briefly reflect on the benefits gained from undertaking substantial HCI work in the design of a healthcare system.
