9 fields of user centered design, usability & ergonomics highlighted

At first, some of the concepts presented on this website might seem unrelated to ergonomics or usability. But when you look at healthcare across a very broad context you begin to appreciate the interconnectedness of dozens of individual tasks, jobs, environments, and more. When you put it all together, and look at the system as a whole, a question emerges: How well does it work?

This question draws on theories of macroergonomics & systems design.
