If you weren't aware: many videotaped demos from the long history of SIGCHI conferences are available on youtube at https://www.youtube.com/c/acmsigchi. Just jumping around I came across two medical records related demos. MedKnowts (2021) has a bunch of interesting affordances based on combining note-taking with structured information retrieval


, while the last minute or so of the LifeLines (1996) demo shows a visual interface for patient history that is sadly much better than the one in my health-care system's current patient interface.


I suspect there are many gems here amongst all kinds of strange and charming past attempts to invent the interfaces of the future

healthcare is overall very poorly served by information technology 😕
