Samuel A. Bonet is a Human and Healthcare Systems Engineering PhD student interested in the study of the integration of new healthcare technologies into clinical workflow. Currently his research focuses on the study of telemedicine technologies on three areas: (1) user engagement (with a focus on healthcare providers), (2) barriers in the integration of telemedicine into clinical workflow, and (3) process improvement efforts in telemedicine integration. His research in these three areas contributes to the literature on telemedicine, human factors in healthcare, and systems engineering in healthcare. It also has practical implications to hospitals, clinics, and physicians that have adopted or are seeking to adopt a telemedicine technology to provide remote health services to their patient community. Additionally, the findings from his research will be of interest to telemedicine companies and educational institutions developing, implementing, or managing telemedicine technologies. Outside of research, he enjoys music and spending quality time with family and friends.
