Save the Date for an Outstanding Virtual Meeting Experience, April 12 - 16, 2021
The 2021 HFES Health Care Symposium features five tracks thereby providing attendees a deep range of content across a spectrum of health care topics. The submission site will open in just a few days. Here are the tracks to be offered:
Patient Safety Research and Initiatives
The Patient Safety Research and Initiatives Track focuses on the multidisciplinary collaboration between patients and healthcare providers to improve the quality and safety of health care. Relevant topics include safety culture, quality improvement, care transitions, Covid-19 response, teamwork and team performance, and patient-as-leader initiatives.
The Digital Health Track focuses on a range of health IT areas that affect clinicians, patients, caregivers and the public. Areas include electronic and personal health records and health management portals, clinical decision support, consumer health mobile applications, telehealth, digital telemetry products, "in-the-home" technologies and various other digital health software applications and interfaces.
The Hospital Environments Track focuses on the professional and technical issues of applying HF/E principles to design processes, devices, and systems in the healthcare environment, supporting the work of health care personnel and affecting the care and safety of patients. We aim for a mix of traditional projects and case studies, as well as wider experiences and perspectives from both HF/E practitioners and clinicians in addressing human factors issues at the clinical front line.
Medical and Drug Delivery Devices
The Medical and Drug-Delivery Devices Track focuses on the application of human factors and user experience methods and principles to the design, evaluation and validation of medical devices and combination products, covering all classes of products to include over-the-counter (OTC). This includes software as a medical device (SaMD). Also addressed in this track are regulatory issues and best practices.
Education and Simulation - NEW
The education and simulation track focuses on the intersection between HF/E and modern simulation capabilities within the healthcare context. This includes human-systems integration of simulation into modern medical education, use of simulation for skills training, testing of new technologies, or even for in-hospital or at-home health systems design. Also addressed in this track are AR/VR technologies, and new techniques/approaches to patient safety and care education.
We hope you will participate as a presenter, attendee, or both! Save the date and share on your social media.
