Abstract

This chapter outlines and discusses how an increasingly popular approach of incorporating patient perspectives and experience in research can be used to inform the development of user-centered technology in healthcare, with particular emphasis on hand-held mobile devices. The chapter draws on a program of research and technological developments between an acute hospital trust and the Schools of Health Sciences and Social Care (SHSSC) and Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics (SISCM) at Brunel University in West London. The authors critically review existing literature and discuss the development of a new prototype mobile device for use by healthcare professionals in capturing patient information at the front end of hospital care.
