Title: Technology-Induced Errors: Where Do They Come From and What Can We Do About Them?

Healthcare information technologies are now routinely deployed and used in a wide variety of healthcare contexts in which they need to be smoothly integrated. Contexts of use of IT in health care differ in terms of workplace, workflows, or-ganisations, habits of work, type and expertise, expectations, and preferences of users, physical implementations, patients’ characteristics, time and workload, etc. The design, implementation, and evaluation of safe, effective, efficient and easy to adopt health informatics therefore require proper consideration of human and organizational factors. Health care organizations, health policy makers and regu-latory bodies globally are starting to acknowledge this essential role of human and organisational factors and progressively incorporate them into regulations and safety initiatives.

This pre-Medinfo conference will remain modest in size to promote informal in-depth interaction between participants and intends to promote cross-disciplinary dialogue, in addition to paper presentations and plenary keynotes. The confer-ence will be held on August 17-18, 2013 in Herlev Hospital in Copenhagen
