World Usability Day 14 Nov, 2013, Healthcare: Collaborating for Better Systems

World Usability Day 14 November, 2013, 
Healthcare: Collaborating for Better Systems
The importance of user-centered design in healthcare is truly life or death. Whether it’s new medical devices or technologies; drug research, approval or delivery; patient forms or medical record sharing; emergency disaster planning or increasing the functionality of hospitals and everyday healthcare delivery, everyone is affected in some way by the intersection of usability in healthcare. There are many commonalities, yet each region of the world faces its own set of unique challenges. We believe that focusing World Usability Day 2013 on healthcare will create a stronger awareness of these issues and lead to initiative that have long term impact on the quality of everyone’s life.

Many People, Many Eyes: Aggregating Influences of Visual Perception on
User
Interface Design
A CHI 2013 workshop, with Keynote talk by Jeffrey Heer

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

There are many differences in how we see the world. Native Welsh
speakers,
for example, lose their ability to differentiate between green and blue
as
they acquire the language (4-month old babies can visually
differentiate,
adults cannot). Colorblindness affects around 8% of men and 0.4% of
women.
Gender modulates which designs we perceive as appealing and
trustworthy.
North Americans are relatively better at ignoring the context
surrounding a
focal object, whereas East Asians perceive such contextual information
first.
These differences affect our perception of interface designs and other
visualizations, yet two substantial questions remain: (1) How can we
provide visual…
