Our research examines the development of a shared visual display to facilitate data entry and validation of an electronic record during multidisciplinary team meeting discussion, where specialists discuss patient symptoms, test results, and image findings. The problem of generating an electronic record for patient files that will serve as a record of collaboration, communication and a guide for later tasks is addressed through use of the shared visual display. Shortcomings in user-informed designed, structured data-entry screens became evident when in actual use. Time constraints prompt the synopsis of discussion in acronyms, free text, abbreviations, and the use of inferences. We demonstrate how common ground, team cohesiveness and the use of a shared visual display can improve dependability, but these factors can also provide a false sense of security and increase vulnerability in the patient management system.], Conference Paper, PUBLISHED  TARA - Full Text  DOI  URL

Bridget Kane and Saturnino Luz, "Do No Harm": Fortifying MDT Collaboration in Changing Technological Times, International Journal of Medical Informatics, 82, 2013, p613 - 625, Notes: [Purpose: To examine the changes in multidisciplinary medical team activity and practices, with respect to the amount of patient cases, the information needs and technology used, with up to 10 multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) in a large teaching hospital over a 10-year period. Methods: An investigation of MDT meeting activity was undertaken in November 2005 and repeated in November 2012 for the MDTs at a large university teaching hospital. Analysis of data from 8 MDTs was informed through long-term ethnographical study, and supplemented with 38 semi-structured interviews and a survey from 182 staff members of MDTs. Results: Work rhythms change over time as a function of the volume of work and technology changes, such as the use of a picture archive and communication system (PACS), videoconferencing and an electronic patient record (EPR). Maintaining cohesive teamwork, system dependability, and patient safety in the context of rapid change is challenging. Conclusions: Benefits of MDT work are in evidence, but the causes are not fully understood. Instead of asking 'how can technology support more MDT activity?', we ask 'how can we preserve the benefits of human-human interaction in an increasingly technological environment?' and 'how can we ensure that we do no harm?' when introducing technology to support an increasingly demanding collaborative work setting. Introducing technology to streamline work might instead threaten the experienced improvement in patient services.], Journal Article, PUBLISHED  TARA - Full Text
