The Application of Systems Ergonomics to the Design of a Mobile COVID-19 Laboratory

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The development of affordable, efficient, effective and accessible surveillance testing has been a focus since the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (i.e., COVID-19) in December 2019. Systems ergonomics can play an important role in pandemic response efforts beyond formal health care settings, including the translation of those tests to support community health. In this paper, the important role systems ergonomics on a project to design and prototype a mobile COVID-19 laboratory are described. In future, we should develop methods and strategies that are rapid and support use by individuals with limited training in systems ergonomics.
