Remote interaction and user research : anaesthetic preadmission activity
Kraal, Ben J. & Popovic, Vesna (2009) Remote interaction and user research : anaesthetic preadmission activity. In Proceedings of the International Association of Societies of Design Research 2009, Korean Society of Design Science, Coex, Seoul, pp. 1-10.
In the absence of telehealth technology, rural patients must travel to a regional or metropolitan hospital for a preadmission consultation one week before their surgery. Currently, examination of the patient’s chest using a stethoscope (auscultation) is not possible over a telehealth network as existing digital stethoscopes have been designed for in-person auscultation. We report on the initial phase of research which ultimately aims to design a digital stethoscope for use in the telehealth context. This initial research phase describes the complexity of the activity of preadmission clinics and the implications for the design of the stethoscope. The research is conducted through field studies of existing face-to-face and remote consultations.
