DOCtimer

A timing and event recording tool for direct observational research

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Clinical research often requires direct observation of clinicians performing routine tasks, but few effective data collection instruments exist. We describe the development of DOCtimer - a web-based, platform-independent timing and counting application that allows researchers to easily record numerous tracking elements on a single screen, faciltating robust data collection for direct observational research.
