Perception-Based Engineering

The efficiency and quality of healthcare delivery can be enhanced by perception-based engineering—optimal design for the human-interface aspects of machines and environments in engineered healthcare systems. Informed inclusion of cognitive and sensory processes in design of these facilities, instruments, and machines can greatly improve the working environment for healthcare providers and, most importantly, improve the quality of care and patient safety. This mode of engineering compliments the systems analysis and modeling expertise present in the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering.
