Motivation – Link Analysis (LA) is a method to study relationships of elements within a system, and it is also used as a data recording method of Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM), e.g. capturing staff movements. However LA has limitations, such as time-consuming data recording and results generating processes. Research approach – Computerised Link Analysis (CLA) system is being developed and tested by computerising template generating, real-time event recording and data analysing processes. Design – The first version of system has been accomplished and its description is included to demonstrate its versatility. Research limitations – This system is still at an early prototype stage and improvements and tests need to be conducted. Value – CLA is the first system which is designed specially for healthcare domain and has proven to save plenty of time compared to manual method. Take away message – CLA system is able to offer analysts an efficient and effective tool to perform LA.
