Congratulations to Allan Fong, MS, Raj Ratwani, PhD, Zach Hettinger, MD, and Daniel Hoffman on their recent paten! 

The team of researchers from  MedStar Health’s National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare has received a U.S. utility patent for a novel system that analyzes eye-tracking data. This work brings together the technology of eye tracking that has been used in other industries for years with machine learning. This is important in the healthcare industry, as it can be used to help investigators understand clinicians’ interaction with electronic systems and ultimately allow clinicians to safely and efficiently interact with the electronic systems they use every day.
