Abstract

Inpatient management of insulin-dependent diabetes (IDD) is a complex task that requires clinicians to cognitively process information across distinct domains in different locations of the electronic medical record (EMR). Current data displays are not optimized to support insulin management by end users. We sought to develop a set of user-centered displays of capillary glucose data and insulin dose to improve inpatient management of IDD. Our proposed conceptual data display prototype is designed to simplify the presentation and visualization of key information needed for treatment decisions. The goal is also to enhance clinician's ability to identify opportunities to optimize insulin dosing and decrease end users' cognitive load and error rates.
