New hardware platforms for healthcare consultations

Randell, R. & Wilson, S. (2010). New hardware platforms for healthcare consultations. Paper presented at the Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH), 11 April 2010, Atlanta, Georgia.


Innovative hardware platforms such as Mobile Clinical Assistants and tabletop computers are emerging that have the potential to significantly impact the interaction between clinician and patient. This position paper describes the results of interviews undertaken with General Practitioners as part of an experimental study to explore how innovative hardware platforms impact patient-clinician communication. We reflect on the lessons learnt from the study, both in terms of the implications for the design of such studies and possible directions for the introduction of new hardware technologies into healthcare consultations.
