BMI 6309 Healthcare Interface Design

(web-based and classroom instruction)
(2 hours lecture/3 hours laboratory)
3 semester credit hours /meets part of advanced informatics competencies
Pre-requisites: BMI 5302 and BMI 5303 OR instructor approval.

This course is a project-based course, and covers topics of user interface design for healthcare related systems (such as EHR, clinical decision support system, dashboards). Students will apply the fundamental principles of human-computer interaction and human factors to real world problems through class projects, and will develop formal documentations of user-centered design process for interface design. The focus is executing a design project to develop user-friendly interfaces, and interfaces that are compliant with industry and government standards (e.g., FDA, CMS, NIST) for healthcare.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will:

  • Plan and implement a user-centered design process to develop an healthcare interface
  • Conduct usability tests using appropriate methods to identify areas for improvement
  • Evaluate interfaces for compliance with industry standards
