Abstract
This project has focused on improving the psychosocial
working environment for hospital staff that uses electronic
patient records in Region Skåne. Through making qualitative
interviews with nurses, doctors and medical secretaries that
use patient records on a daily basis I’ve gotten a view of some
of the issues with the current system.

The problems today seem to be that the documentation
system is time consuming, hard to navigate in, non-intuitive
and puts a heavy strain on the users memory capacity. This is

the difference between life and death for the patient.

very serious in a world were mistakes can sometimes mean
the difference between life and death for the patient.

The outcome is a proposal for another way of organising
health care informatics so that it should be easier to find and
more intuitive. The prototype is a sketch proposal of how the
computer program would look. The prototype has some
interactive elements to illustrate how the user would
navigate in the system. The goal was to investigate the staffs
natural working flow and adjust the design accordingly to
make the documentation program a support instead of an
obstacle. This report also discusses general human
psychology, user friendliness and what role technology has in
our lives. (Less)
