By examining the larger user experience involved in the microfluidics process, we can identify issues, and design these experiences to reduce the potential for user error, improve outcomes and create a simpler, more accessible process.
Devices by themselves don’t improve outcomes. Better lifestyle integration is key to driving changes in patient compliance—embedding sensors into the sorts of devices people can use every day to increase opportunities for passive biometric capture and to facilitate therapeutics.
Expanded designs that enable clinicians to leverage data in making healthcare decisions, but privacy challenges remain.
Part II of this series proposes that structured expert judgment, when integrated into the current HFE/UE paradigm, can help overcome some of the current limitations of HFE/UE.
This series makes the argument for probability assessments in HFE/UE for medical devices and how to incorporate it into the paradigm.
Companies should not underestimate the importance of investing in user experience design.
Is your risk management process fully operational right now?
Why this sentiment can cause more harm than good.
Human factors engineering and the tools companies can leverage will get way more sophisticated.
The agency calls out specific devices that should include human factors data in premarket submissions, along with recommendations for combination products.
