CAP testimonial

Project Sponsor Testimonial

"We were very, very, impressed with the quality and thoughtfulness of [the students'] efforts. The physician workflow in the emergency department is complex and highly variable. In a short period of time, the team was able to analyze that workflow through interviews and direct observation, identify relevant pain points, iteratively attack those pain points, mock up software solutions, create a professional-quality video to illustrate their work, and back it up with a comprehensive deck. Kudos and thanks to the team, and to the HCDE department for addressing very relevant issues in clinical IT."Carl Spitzer, MD; CEO of Healium
