Dr. Salwei’s research is focused on the design of complex sociotechnical systems, specifically health care systems. She is interested in research applying human factors engineering methods and principles to improve the design of health information technology (IT) to support clinician’s work and improve patient safety. Her dissertation research studied workflow integration of a clinical decision support implemented in the emergency department, and developed a conceptual model of workflow integration of health IT. Megan is interested in how to successfully integrate advanced technologies, such as those based on machine learning and artificial intelligence, into clinical workflow. She is also interested in the design of health IT to support the work of healthcare teams.
