English abstract:
This position paper describes the Human-Computer
Interaction (HCI) field studies component of the
multidisciplinary Patient Records Enhancement Project (PREP).
PREP seeks to understand variability of data found in primary
care electronic records, in particular the balance between coded
data and doctor's 'free text' notes. HCI fieldwork will establish
variables that affect recording practices. In field studies we
observe and record data recording practices in general practice
(GP) surgeries, interview staff, video consultations with real
patients and video consultations with standardized patients
(played by medical actors). By standardizing patients we can
compare the impact of other variables: different doctors, in
different surgeries, using different e-health systems. Our early
findings suggest that variability is due to a complex web of
reasons, driven by personal, contextual and organizational
processes. Findings from thematic analysis will result in design
implications for studies by epidemiologists and public health
researchers, design of NHS training and work processes, and
design of electronic health record interfaces.
