Incentives in medical domain

Hi everybody,

I work at a company who develops medical devices. There are strict
regulations concerning bribary in this domain. Becuase of that my boss
is very concerned about giving incentives to nurses or doctors who
participate in an usability test or a focus group or something

Does anybody here also work in the medical domain or a similar
regulated area? How do you handle incentives for users who participate
in evaluations of prototypes or requirement analysises?

Thanks in advance,

hows this for a simple interface?


The above link takes you to a blog entry and in it a screenshot of a
CAD interface. CAD interfaces are infamous for being incredibly
complex. This takes it to the other extreme.

Personally, I think there is something missing here. Communication layer.
When I deal with paper and pencil (the inspiration here), there is a
long history of use and well my schooling in it. Think about it.

what control to use?

Hello all,

I am working on a project that requires the ability to assign a user in the
system to a role. There are three roles to choose from and each role
provides rights to certain screens and tools.
If you choose the third role, you also need to select from a list of rights
that user will have. Note: this is something that will not happen often.

Something like this....

( ) role one
( ) role two
(.) role three
[] right 1
[] right 2
[] right 3
[] right 4
[] right 5

As you can see, I need ideas as to how to better present this to the user.

Thank you,

Multi-lingual transactional Web sites

My apologies if this post seems off-topic, but I have a question which falls
into the category of 'user experience' and so here I am...

We are in the process of evaluating a large e-business site for a global
business. Parts of the site are available in languages other than English,
but none of the site's primary transactional functions have been translated:
these are only available in English.

The nature of the service/product being sold is complex. It requires a great
deal of knowledge about the service/product being purchased in order to
complete a transaction.

A few of us have been tossing ideas around for a few weeks, and we'd
like to get a group of LA IAs together to agree on a plan going
forward. No need to be a member of the Information Architecture
Institute. No need to be an IA. We welcome all those with an
interest in IA.
