The usability of health information systems and technologies has become a major issue in eHealth. There are many reports of eHealth solutions that failed to take into account human factors. These factors need to be considered in making systems easy to use and effective for health professionals as well as for patients and lay people. In this Bootcamp you will learn about usability, how it can be measured, assessed and improved. We will also examine some of the issues with current eHealth solutions and how lessons learned from the success of mobile applications and the smartphone can be applied. Criteria for designing and evaluating the usability of eHealth solutions will be described, along with an effective, simple and practical approach known as low-cost rapid usability testing.
