NOSTOS: a paper-based ubiquitous computing healthcare environment to support data capture and collaboration
2003 (English)In: AMIA Annual Symposium Proceedings, Volume 2003; 2003, 2003, 46-50 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, we present a new approach to clinical workplace computerization that departs from the window–based user interface paradigm. NOSTOS is an experimental computer–augmented work environment designed to support data capture and teamwork in an emergency room. NOSTOS combines multiple technologies, such as digital pens, walk–up displays, headsets, a smart desk, and sensors to enhance an existing paper–based practice with computer power. The physical interfaces allow clinicians to retain mobile paper–based collaborative routines and still benefit from computer technology. The requirements for the system were elicited from situated workplace studies. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of augmenting a paper–based clinical work environment.
