Dr. Shilo Anders is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology at Vanderbilt University. Dr Anders’ research focus is to apply human factors engineering as an approach to improve patient safety in healthcare. She is interested in research on system design, individual and team performance issues, and improvements in patient safety and quality. Of particular interest is improving health information technology (HIT), through a user-centered design process that starts with methods to thoroughly understand the work domain. Dr. Anders is helping to make HIT more efficient, effective and be better integrated into the clinical workflow. In addition, she is applying human factors engineering to design, develop, and evaluate patient-facing healthcare technologies.
