Ergonomic Assessment



Within the ambulatory care environment, healthcare organizations are challenged to address the rapidly advancing
technological demands associated with electronic health records (EHR) when building new facilities or renovating existing
infrastructures. The Clemson Healthcare Work System Ergonomic Assessment Toolkit is a tool for evaluating the ergonomics of alternative computer workstation configurations within the broader context of the ambulatory work system which they
are placed. The toolkit provides guidance for analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of varying applications of technology
integration into ambulatory workspaces to support evidence-based design decisions.
