Abstract

Prescription charts are not designed with the task of programing medical devices in mind [cf. 1]. This is surprising because we know that charts need to be consulted for programing values. This paper summarizes what we know about chart design, and then reflects on what we do not know. In order to design charts that facilitate programming, we need a better understanding of how they are used in hospitals. We cannot only ask nurses about how they use them since they may omit information about context and clinical practice. We discuss approaches that we plan to use to obtain the required understanding.
