Question Description

I don’t know how to handle this Health & Medical question and need guidance.

Instructions

The final project requires a formal assessment of carrying out an administrative or clinical task in the EHR, Meditech. At this point, you should be somewhat familiar with some of the functionalities of Meditech. Therefore, you should have enough information to evaluate the usability of an administrative and/or clinical task. The final project will require you to use a usability assessment methods and a minimum of 3 users. Given the fact that you may have difficulty evaluating real users, feel free to use a haphazard sampling method. That is, use whomever you can as a user. I highly encourage you to use your fellow classmates, faculty, coworkers, or family as potential users.
