Seattle Children’s Hospital Patient Information System
While good design of medical information systems has tremendous impact on the safety and efficiency of care, it’s often made a secondary priority. Recognizing the importance of design, Seattle Children’s Hospital partnered with Artefact to create a vision for an interactive system intended to work across multiple roles, from the student doctor to the hospital administrator.
The concept solution united multiple sources to tell the patient story, helped prioritize work, and provided status cues tailored to the user’s role. The people-centric solution augmented vital human connections rather than replace personal communication with technology.
