Usability Guidance

To support usability outcomes related to the use of immunization-related functionality in electronic health records (EHRs) and other clinical software, CNIADV developed two key outcomes:

  • User-Centered Design Primer, which offers guidance on how to conduct a user-centered design (UCD) process in order to improve usability outcomes related to the use of immunization functionality in EHRs and other clinical software.
  • User-Centered Model Documentation, which includes immunization-related content and user interface designs from business workflow requirements to enable the creation of functional prototypes through the use of the UCD model documentation. It also includes discussion on the use of the UCD model to explore immunization-related forecasting and data quality.

CNIADV, HIMSS and ICSA Labs seek user input from both users (clinicians and other immunization providers) as well as software developers on these usability tools.
