FACULTY

Kristen Miller, DrPH, CPPS

ABSTRACT

Human factors engineering, a discipline focusing on human strengths and limitations in the design of systems and work environments, has found a recent application in the health care space. Dr. Miller—a clinically oriented human factors researcher focusing on medical decision-making and behavior, informatics, and the assessment of medical interventions and practices—will explore how the PCMH is supported by human factors engineering with an emphasis on usability, human error, and patient safety.
