Patient-Physician Communication


Communication in the medical office between physician and patient is challenging. This is often complicated by third party in the room such as relatives or an interpreter if the patient is not mother language and by the presence of the Electronic Health Record (EHR). We want to better understand the system defined by the medical office and the role that people, artifacts and technology play in this environment to inform the design of the next generation interactive tools and visualization.
