I'm deeply interested in health informatics and computer systems in hospital environments. Here - for once - computers and IT can make themselves useful in a practical way ;)

Software can be used for supporting physicians and nurses, helping to elicit or confirm patient's diagnoses, monitor critical lab values, prevent harmful or unnecessary medications and generally support the care process wherever suitable.

With the real focus of attention on actual human beings and medical professionals doing their best to treat and help, while frequently switching working context and making important decisions, I'm intrigued by the challenges posed on the computer software involved and the way it must be designed when a user's time and attention is the most valuable resource.
