Wu, Leslie (2012): Medical operating documents: dynamic checklists improve crisis attention. In: Adjunct Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 47-50. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2380296.2380317

The attentional aspects of crisis computing -- supporting highly trained teams as they respond to real-life emergencies -- have been underexplored in the user interface community. My research investigates the development of interactive software systems that support crisis teams, with an eye towards intelligently managing attention. In this paper, I briefly describe MDOCS, a Medical operating DOCuments System built for time-critical interaction. MDOCS is a multi-user, multi-surface software system that implements dynamic checklists and interactive cognitive aids written to support medical crisis teams. I present the results of a study that evaluates the deployment of MDOCS in a realistic, mannequin-based medical simulator used by anesthesiologists. I propose controlled laboratory experiments that evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of our design principles and attentional interaction techniques.

Wu, Leslie, Cirimele, Jesse, Card, Stuart, Klemmer, Scott, Chu, Larry and Harrison, Kyle (2011): Maintaining shared mental models in anesthesia crisis care with nurse tablet input and large-screen displays. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 71-72. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2046396.2046428

In an effort to reduce medical errors, doctors are beginning to embrace cognitive aids, such as paper-based checklists. We describe the early stage design process of an interactive cognitive aid for crisis care teams. This process included collaboration with anesthesia professors in the school of medicine and observation of medical students practicing in simulated scenarios. Based on these insights, we identify opportunities to employ large-screen displays and coordinated tablets to support team performance. We also propose a system design for interactive cognitive aids intended to encourage a shared mental model amongst crisis care staff.

Hartmann, Bjorn, Wu, Leslie, Collins, Kevin and Klemmer, Scott R. (2007): Programming by a sample: rapidly creating web applications with d.mix. In: Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology October 7-10, 2007, Newport, Rhode Island, USA. pp. 241-250. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1294211.1294254

Source-code examples of APIs enable developers to quickly gain a gestalt understanding of a library's functionality, and they support organically creating applications by incrementally modifying a functional starting point. As an increasing number of web sites provide APIs, significant latent value lies in connecting the complementary representations between site and service -- in essence, enabling sites themselves to be the example corpus. We introduce d.mix, a tool for creating web mashups that leverages this site-to-service correspondence. With d.mix, users browse annotated web sites and select elements to sample. d.mix's sampling mechanism generates the underlying service calls that yield those elements. This code can be edited, executed, and shared in d.mix's wiki-based hosting environment. This sampling approach leverages pre-existing web sites as example sets and supports fluid composition and modification of examples. An initial study with eight participants found d.mix to enable rapid experimentation, and suggested avenues for improving its annotation mechanism.
