Sample text

One example is the QUIS, a validated questionnaire for assessing users’satisfaction with interfaces that was designed at the University of Maryland at College Park. The QUIS has been widely used and can help developers to estimate the impact the new product will have (Chin, Diehl, & Norman, 1988). Other Inquiring Methods Other methods of inquiry may be useful at various stages of the process. Among these are screen snapshots, where a prototype of a product is tested (usually at mid-stage of development) and screen snapshots are taken to document users’ actions at specific points, and journaled sessions, where journaling software is used to record user’s actions, including cursor movements, mouse clicks, and other interface interactions.

Equally important is how the information is delivered. To create quality e-health, designers must attend to the needs and wants of users by engaging them in the design and testing processes. User-centered design (UCD) is a formal approach to ensuring that new products address the needs, wants, skills, and preferences of the user throughout the tool’s development. UCD is a design and evaluation process which pays special attention to the intended users, what they will do with the product, where they will use it, and what features they consider essential.

Inquiring, inspection and testing methods are essential when planning a UCD, and although there is plenty of information about the importance of UCD in software development, many development programs fail to comply with key principles. When failing to comply, the software can be difficult to use, and this paves the way to failure. This failure can be observed both in software which is not completely put into use or is rejected due to user dissatisfaction. When developing interfaces and designing software for medical patients to use, developers must thoroughly understand patients’ needs and capabilities.
