October 26, 2007 lecture by Paul Tang for the Stanford University Human-Computer Interaction Seminar (CS 547). Even more fragmented than American health care is the management of health care information. Faced with a barrage of poorly organized health information, physicians and other clinicians must sift through uninspired displays to glean pearls of information necessary to make clinical decisions. New tools for information gathering from patients and for information rendering to patients must be developed in order to activate patients to become fully informed and fully empowered members of their health care team.
CS 547: Human-Computer Interaction Seminar (Seminar on People, Computers, and Design) is a Stanford University course that features weekly speakers on topics related to human-computer interaction design. The seminar is organized by the Stanford HCI Group, which works across disciplines to understand the intersection between humans and computers. This playlist consists of seminar speakers recorded during the 2007-2008 academic year.
