Automated Evaluation of Medical Software Usage: Algorithm and Statistical Analyses

Stud Health Technol Inform. 2015;216:965.


Evaluating the correctness of medical software usage is critically important in healthcare system management. Turf [1] is a software that can effectively collect interactions between user and computer. In this paper, we propose an algorithm to compare the recorded human-computer interaction events with a predefined path. Based on the pass/fail results, statistical analysis methods are proposed for two applications: to identify training effects and to compare products of the same functionality.
