Abstract

The use of handheld tablet computer devices by health care professionals is nowadays ubiquitous. However, when used by the physician in a patient consultation context, the experience perceived by the patient may be less than optimal because the technology and UIs have been designed for the physician's use, not for collaborative patient-physician situations. Typically, the device may create a barrier, reducing eye contact between the two parties, whilst providing no directly perceivable benefits to the patient. We present a functional implementation of a dual sided tablet where the back of the tablet presents constructive information to the patient during the consultation. We describe our initial exploration into the user interface and content that may be applied to such a device and context of use.
