Summary of "Technology-mediated macrocognition: Investigating how physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists make critical decisions."

Although intensive care clinicians are expected to make data-driven critical decisions using the technologies available to them, the effect of those technologies on decision-making are not well understood. Using the macrocognitive framework, we studied critical decision-making and technology use to understand how different specialists within teams make decisions and guide the development of decision-making support technologies.
