Physicians need to integrate large amounts of information from patient records to determine their patients' current status. To design a user-friendly querying interface for retrieving and querying data from modern electronic patient records (EPR), a good understanding of the associated cognitive processes is essential. In this thesis the abstraction hierarchy (AH) is discussed as a tool both for understanding the EPR work domain in rheumatology, and for guiding the development of a new EPR interface for use by rheumatologists. Following an analysis of the EPR information needs in rheumatology, carried out during a 14-month field study, a prototype information-querying interface was constructed, using AH as a conceptual framework. In the final phase, a series of evaluations was carried out, consisting of high-level exploratory interviews with practitioners, a cognitive walkthrough, and a heuristic evaluation
