The images in this posting were provided by a colleague who describes the importance of sight lines in relation to the setup of computers in the examination room.
He states: "I believe the sight lines to the patient and to the computer EMR are such that I don't believe interferes with the patient physician dialogue or interaction. I just have the computer table at 90 degrees to the wall as in the 2 exam rooms in the pictures. I hope it is helpful to anyone setting up. As an aside, I have put the BP machine in the corner which makes it easy to see without turning away from the patient (it is behind the white light stand)" (Click on any image to enlarge)
Have you had any experience with evaluating sight lines in your exam rooms? Should this be part of the usability analysis of configuring exam rooms?
