I'd be very, very happy to contribute to this.

It seems you have a nice focus in usability - efficacy, efficiency and satisfaction. For me, it seems vital to make IT useful and not a burden, reducing clinicians wasted time on non-clinical duties and their general distaste with the software they have to use. I'm a UX PhD, I have experience working with very particular groups of users, and I would be very motivated in working for better healthcare.

Amen. As a doctor I have to deal with a lot of crappy computer interfaces. Data entry in hospitals (at least the sort that gets the hospitals money) ends up being done by non-medical personnel because the medical personnel are too busy trying to do their job to care whether they coded something wrong on the computer system.
