Cognitive-Behavioral Testing With User-Centered Design

in Significant Risk Devices Prior to FDA Review

Contextual inquiry

When we perform contextual inquiry, it is generally done by one interviewer talking one to one with the person being interviewed and with the aim of gathering as much raw data as possible from the interview for later analysis.


Interviewees are interviewed in their environment, when doing their tasks, with as little interference from the interviewer as possible.  In healthcare, we can do this wherever care is provided or work is performed.  That can be in a field setting, an office, clinic, hospital, laboratory, or even operating room.



Verification and Validation Testing


When we perform usability testing in simulated environments, we generally perform it in a usability laboratory where we can create simulated environments and test a device or product using a scenario much like it would be used in the workplace.  For healthcare, that means that we recruit real patients, real healthcare workers, lay healthcare providers, lab technicians, etc.  Our aim is to create a situation that tests the limits of the device/product using real users.  We can conduct usability testing in any major city in the United States and abroad.
