Designing a Mobile Application for Structured and Flexible Interview Data Collection in the Health Domain

Tanja Svarre, Tine Bieber Kirkegaard Lunn


The purpose of this paper is to report on the design of an Android tablet application for data collection by occupational therapists. The design emerged from two design workshops held with users experienced in collecting data on the challenges clients face in using technologies in their daily lives. On the basis of information gathered in the workshops, an Android application was developed for use in clinical and research settings. The aim was to ease the data-collection process and improve data quality by digitizing an existing analogue tool.
