We present a virtual reality framework and assistive tool for design practices for new medical environments, grounded on human visual perception, attention and action. This includes an interactive visualization of shared electronic patient records, previously acquired with a remote tablet device, in a virtual environment incorporating hand tracking, eye tracking and a vision-based peripheral view monitoring. The goal is to influence medical environments' affordances, especially for e-health and m-health applications as well as user experience and design conception for tele-medicine.
