Abstract: The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program is an authoritative source of cancer surveillance information in the US. The main system for data collection and dissemination is SEER*DMS. As the program implements new initiatives to augment the volume and variety of captured data, it is also designing a usability framework that will establish critical check points for employing user centered design methodologies to ensure optimal usability of SEER*DMS

Learning Objective 1: After participating in this poster session, the learner should be better able to:
Develop and implement a usability framework for a Health Information System that: (1) accounts for a complex network of system users; (2) supports analysis of a large number of system processes; and (3) evolves as user needs change over time.
