A Regional PD Strategy for EPR Systems: Evidence-Based IT Development

Jesper Simonsen, Morten Hertzum

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    One of the five regions in Denmark has initiated a remark-able and alternative strategy for the development of Elec-tronic Patient Record (EPR) systems. This strategy is driven by Participatory Design (PD) experiments and based on evidence of positive effects on the clinical practice when using EPR systems. We present this PD strategy and our related research on evidence-based IT development. We report from a newly completed PD experiment with EPR in the region conducted through a close collaboration compris-ing a neurological stroke unit, the region’s EPR unit, the vendor, as well as the authors.
