Welcome to the home of the research group of Yalini Senathirajah, PhD.
We conduct research on the impact of interaction design on users of health information technology, with an emphasis on electronic health records. Our work has implications for the safety of patients and satisfaction of clinicians.
Dr. Senathirajah's work to develop novel interaction design in electronic health records has been cited in the 2015 Report of the AMIA EHR 2020 Task Force on the Status and Future Direction of EHRs, a report chartered by the Board of Directors of the American Medical Informatics Association. Dr. Senathirajah's novel user interface was cited within this set of recommendations for how to resolve the top EHR issues plaguing the healthcare system.
