MetadataShow full item record
Ospedale Amico (Friendly Hospital) is a mobile and personalized information system, aimed at improving the quality of the communication between medical staff and patients. The system provides the patients with up-to-date and context dependent day hospital activity guidance, and let them enter personal data and browse user-adapted descriptions of their disease. In this paper we describe the system functionality an discuss how we have addressed the limitations identified in the field study of an earlier prototype. © 2013 IEEE.
