Findings from the 2018 Yearbook Section on Human Factors and Organizational Issues
29 August 2018 (online)
Objective: To summarize significant research contributions published in 2017 on Human Factors and Organizational Issues (HFOI) in medical informatics.
Methods: An extensive search using PubMed/Medline and Web of Science® was conducted to identify the scientific contributions published in 2017 that HFOI issues in medical informatics. The selection process comprised three steps: (i) 15 candidate best papers out of 695 references were first selected by the two section editors, (ii) external reviewers from internationally renowned research teams reviewed each candidate best paper, and (iii) the final selection of five best papers was conducted by the editorial board of the Yearbook.
Results: The five best papers offer a glimpse of the quality and breadth of the work being conducted in the HFOI community.
Conclusion: The selection of the HFOI section of the 2018 IMIA Yearbook highlights a growing number of high quality studies. There are especially more studies interested in testing Human Factors and Ergonomics methods and demonstrating the benefits.
