We present an observational tool to capture computer usage patterns during rounds to inform designs of information and communication technology to support clinical discourse during rounds. The tool captures choreography and logistics of information exchanges supported by clinical information systems during rounds. We developed the tool as part of an ongoing video-recording study of communication to under-stand how, when, and why computers are used during multidisciplinary clinical rounds.
