Princeton – October 12, 2007 – We all want better healthcare. We all want
our healthcare to keep up with new technologies. What innovations are
meeting these demands? For answers, join members of IEEE Engineering in
Medicine and Biology Society and UsabilityNJ, the New Jersey chapter of the
Usability Professionals' Association for World Usability Day, on November 8,
2007. This year the focus in New Jersey is usability for innovations in
"Usability engineering has a major part in improving healthcare in New
Jersey. Usability specialists are responsible for making products that are
easy to use, whether the product is for a physician, such as electronic
prescription handling, or for a consumer, such has someone in a
rehabilitation program," says UsabilityNJ event chair and New Jersey
resident Alice Preston. "This event brings together professionals in human
factors, engineering, computer science, and medicine to meet with students,
innovators, and the business community."
