Wardenburg EMR Project


The Wardenburg EMR Project was initiated with the goal of improving the usability and deployment strategy involving the electronic medical record system used at the Wardenburg Health Center. Stemming from this original intention, we are hoping to explore problems in the family practice and clinic design space. A majority of research conducted regarding electronic medical records has been conducted in large healthcare settings such as hospitals. This small setting provides the ideal settings for deploying changes and observing their impact.
