Human-computer Interaction, Usability, User Experience, Heuristic Evaluation, Prototype.
Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is the study of human, computers and their interactions. It describes information exchanged through a variety of symbols and behaviours during two-way communication between humans and computers. In Cardiology, HCI plays an important role while designing interface of cardiac patient monitoring systems. Good user experience and comfortable human-computer interaction have steadily gained attention from users and designers. Poorly designed user interface can create dissatisfaction for physicians. In order to achieve the success of the underlying systems, numerous approaches could prove useful in avoiding these interaction difficulties. This study provides comprehensive study on enhancement of Cardiac Patient Monitoring systems layout, and highlights problems faced by doctors and other medical professionals and offers solutions for redesigning these systems' designs. Poor human factors design is considered the root cause of problems. Adopting HCI techniques presents a number of challenges that require in-depth research in order to be overcome. This study suggests usability and heuristic evaluation methods to aid researchers in improving the usability and efficacy of cardiac patient monitoring systems. Heuristic evaluation is one of these methods used after system usability has been assessed through questionnaire analysis. By adopting this technique HCI researchers will able to bring innovation in designing layout of these devices for Clinicians.
