Mobile Medical Applications-Understanding the User Interface on Mobile Device
April 16, 2014 | Archive Now Available
The Mobile platforms are user-friendly tools with powerful computation readily available. Innovators are developing mobile apps to leverage the ubiquitous access to information, computational power and integrated sensors offered by mobile platforms. These features whet strongly the appetite of healthcare providers, eager of mobile apps capable of improving & facilitating delivery of patient care.
The user interface, or UI, of a device is the look and feel of the on-screen menu system.
Several important concepts must be mastered when designing mobile device interfaces. One of the most important is the “context”. This context concerns as much the environment in which an application is used, than the target users, or the manner of information input.
In this webinar, the speaker will share his experience gathered during several projects related to mobile medical application.
Topics for discussion are:
-Common User Interface Issues
-Challenges in implementing mobile medical application interfaces
-Understanding Device-User Interface
-Human Factors of Device use
His findings are synthesized under concise guidelines to help stakeholders to take appropriate decision in the development of mobile medical application interfaces.
The central theme of the presentation concerns the steps toward the construction of an efficient user interface on mobile devices in a medical environment.
A live Q&A with the audience will follow the presentation.

Frederic Ehrler is an experienced healthcare IT professional, specializes in medical informatics. He holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Geneva, Switzerland. His thesis focused on text mining on biomedical data. After his PhD, Frederic has worked for 2 years for the development of the CIS of the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG).
During this period, he has acquired a strong knowledge about the challenges inherent to the management of a modern CIS. Since 2012, Frederic has been working as R&D developer in the Division of Medical Information Sciences of the HUG. This division is looking at developing innovative ways to manage CIS information. In this context, Frederic has developed a special interest to study the issues related to the access of medical content through mobile devices. This has led him to acquire extensive expertise about usability, human-computer interactions, data representation, data acquisition quality and reliability.
