Human factors is not just about patient safety and compliance, it’s about understanding. At BlueBridge Technologies, we understand how patients interact with digital devices and the extent of influence the design of a physical device, user interface and user journey has on these mediated experiences. We form this understanding by asking the right questions to help you identify requirements and understand their limitations. We then guide and inform your development process with real user feedback to maximise its efficacy.
The World Of Understanding
Why Human Factors Matter
Involving the end user as early and as often as possible has a significant impact on the success of any development program. We provide an end-to-end medical human factors service that includes user research; task analysis and identification of critical tasks; use related risk analysis usability test protocol design; participant recruitment (patient, carers, and healthcare professionals); formative studies; reporting, analysis and design recommendation; human factors regulatory support; and summative validation studies. We’ve also developed reliable methodologies and analytical approaches to meet the demand for human factors engineering throughout development. We analyse the analysable, research the researchable and are honest about what is left.
