Integration of human factors/ergonomics in healthcare systems: a giant leap in safety as a key strategy during Covid‐19

journal contribution
posted on 17.05.2021, 14:53 by Yordán Rodríguez, Sue HignettSue Hignett
In this article, we present a model for integrating Human Factors/Ergonomics (HFE) into healthcare systems to make them more robust and resilient. We believe that to increase the impact of HFE during and after the Covid‐19 pandemic this integration should be carried out simultaneously at all levels (micro, meso, and macro) of the healthcare system. This new model recognizes the interrelationship between HFE and other system characteristics such as capacity, coverage, robustness, integrity, and resilience. We hope that the model will serve as a reference for a giant leap to design and improve the safety and effectiveness of healthcare services from a holistic (systems) perspective.
